Anyone wanna help-a-noob?
Open a terminal and issue "locate gimp-print" and if it's installed
on your system you should get something like this:
mingdao@james:~$ locate gimp-print
I know nothing about Clark Connect, so might not be much help.
If you'll click on the second link I gave you, and read that page,
you'll eventually find the information you need. About 3/4 down
The following driver(s) are known to drive this printer:
* Recommended: gimp-print (Home page)
and if you click on the Home page link, you'll get the Gimp-Print printer
drivers page. Read that and you'll see
For a quick download, please visit here.
which will lead you to the source code for gimp-print. You'll need to
download gimp-print-4.2.7.tar.gz and if I'm right, you're next question
will be, "How do I compile from source?" Good question.
LQ has a section, which on your menus to the left of here ----------->
is titled Linux Tutorials
. Click on it and you'll find under the heading
Applications / GUI / Multimedia one that is appropriately titled....
Compiling Programs from Source
Now you're distribution may have a packaging system and a server
somewhere that has gimp-print all ready for you to download and
install with a few "mouse clicks." But I'm not familiar with Clark
Connect so I don't know...
Well, I just chanced a quick browse at www.clarkconnect.org
guess what I read...
In addition, you can install any of the thousands of RPM software packages available from Red Hat, ClarkConnect, and other vendor sites.
So perhaps Clark Connect is a RedHat spinoff, but at any rate, I think
perhaps their website can give you a better answer than I can. It
looks as if it's not actually a "Linux distribution," but a Broadband
Gateway / Server. I'm in over my head.
If you don't get the help you need here at LQ, maybe try this ->
IRC #clarkconnect on http://www.quakenet.org/
which is the official
IRC chat for that product, or http://www.clarkconnect.org/forums/ubbthreads.php
which is the Clark Connect forum.
