foomatic-rip


Hi,

I want to use foomatic-rip for direct printing.
I did everything the manual says.
When I want to print I get the message:
usr/bin/foomatic-rip : bad interpreter : file not found

Maybe I don't use the right version of Perl ?

Ok, what version of perl did you use? What was the exact command line command that you used?

Cheers--
Charles

To charles,

I am on Mandrake 8.2
I use Perl 5.6.0
foomatic-rip is the last version linuxprinting.org
I put foomatic-rip in /usr/bin/ and hp920.ppd in etc/foomatic/direct
I did everything like described in Spooler-Less Printing from Linuxprinting.org
command was:
/usr/bin/foomatic-rip -hp.920 -o /docs/proc/cpuinfo

I got message:
foomatic-rip: bad interpreter: file not found

It's presumably been hardcoded with a perl path that does not exist on your system. open the script file and change the shebang to point to the real path of the perl binary on your system (run "which perl" to find out where it is if you don't know)
