Maybe switching distros will help but---in general---it is not the best way to solve problems.

Hi,

When I followed the instruction given in the site http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/, and issue # make command, I get the following output


#
# Dependencies...
#
# ... OK!
#
cc -O2 -Wall -c -o zjsdecode.o zjsdecode.c
In file included from /usr/include/errno.h:36,
from zjsdecode.c:30:
/usr/include/bits/errno.h:25:26: error: linux/errno.h: No such file or directory
make: *** [zjsdecode.o] Error 1


I cant understand the meaning of this as I am a newbie. Any Idea ?

Thanks !

This thread has too many parallel discussions!!

I suggested trying Gutenprint---and no response.

You talked about switching distros, and I made a comment, and now you're back to trying to compile something!!!!

OK:
Quote:
/usr/include/bits/errno.h:25:26: error: linux/errno.h: No such file or directory
This means that it cannot find the file it is looking for (errno.h). On my system, this appears in: /usr/src/linux-2.6.31-ARCH/include/linux (I have the full sources installed---If you only have the headers, then it may be somewhere else)

Regardless of where they are, the kernel header files have to be installed before you can compile any software.

BUT: In something like 7 years using Linux, I have never had to compile a printer driver---and with the current level of HP Linux support, I have trouble seeing how this would be necessary.

How about humouring me and at least trying Gutenprint???

More information, hopefuly not more confusion...

I found this on how to install the HPLIP driver for PCLinuxOS.

http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web...pclinuxos.html

It is for installation of this driver.
