Problem with printer installation (Canon LBP-800)
 
Hello there!

I'm trying to install Canon LBP-800 printer and there are some troubles. I've downloaded driver and start installation.

After make output is like this:
Code:

gcc  -O2 -s -Wall \
errcapt.c bmcapt.c lbp800.c \
-l cups -o bin/Release/lbp800
gcc  -O2 -s -Wall \
errcapt.c pport.c timcapt.c llcapt.c pkcapt.c hlcapt.c parcapt.c \
-l cups -o bin/Release/parcapt

But after make install, there are some errors:
Code:

gcc  -O2 -s -Wall \
errcapt.c bmcapt.c lbp800.c \
-l cups -o bin/Release/lbp800
gcc  -O2 -s -Wall \
errcapt.c pport.c timcapt.c llcapt.c pkcapt.c hlcapt.c parcapt.c \
-l cups -o bin/Release/parcapt
install -s -m a=rx bin/Release/lbp800 /usr/bin
install -m a=rx lbp800-print /usr/bin
install -m a=r ppd/Canon-LBP-800.ppd /usr/share/ppd/custom
install: cannot create regular file ‘/usr/share/ppd/custom’: No such file or directory
make: *** [install] Error 1

I'm using OpenSuSE 12.2 and krpmbuilder, checkinstall and cups are installed.

Can anyone tell me what to do?
Thanks anyway!

you need to be root to make a folder in " /usr/share/ppd/custom"

as a normal user you run "./configure" -- if needed
as a normal user you run "make" as a normal user
BUT
you run " make install" as root

ALSO be advised
OpenSUSE12.1 is now "End of Life" as of today
SEE: "OpenSUSE lifetime"
http://en.opensuse.org/Lifetime

time to install OpenSUSE 12.3

I've done exactly as you said and got this problem.

P.S.
And I checked I am running OpenSuSE 12.2 :)
Thanks for advice anyway!
