Thank you for catching that.
My second sed command was wrong. Fixed it. Now it reads

  sed 's?-\([0-9]\{1,\}\)$?_\1?')
Regarding the permissions of the last directory in /var/spool/...
Here's what I have on one of my systems (14.1 64-bit):
Code:
ls -l /var/spool/
...
drwx--x--- 3 root   lp     4096 Jul 18 10:45 cups
drwxr-xr-x 3 root   root   4096 Mar  4  2015 lpd
I wonder if I should set for lpd the same ownership/permissions as cups
Code:
ls -l /var/spool/lpd
drw-r--r-- 2 root root 4096 May 14  2014 BrGenML1
In /var/spool/cups there's a tmp directory that is
Code:
drwxrwx--T 2 root lp 4096 Sep  6 11:33 tmp
I wonder if /var/spool/lpd/BrGenML1 (or DCP7030, etc.) should have the same permissions?

Maybe so and also notice the group = lp ?

Yes, I did
I think instead of copying var and its sufolders, I'll do something like this
Code:
#cp -a var $PKG

mkdir -p $PKG/install

cat > $PKG/install/doinst.sh <<EOS
if [ ! -e /var/spool/lpd ]
  mkdir /var/spool/lpd
  chgrp --reference=/var/spool/cups -R /var/spool/lpd
  chmod --reference=/var/spool/cups -R /var/spool/lpd
fi

mkdir -p /var/spool/lpd/DCP7030
chgrp --reference=/var/spool/cups/tmp -R /var/spool/lpd/DCP7030
chmod --reference=/var/spool/cups/tmp -R /var/spool/lpd/DCP7030
EOS

Nice vonbiber !

I learned another new one !

I didn't know about the --reference=RFILE flag for GNU chmod / chown / chgrp ( man chmod ; man chown ; man chgrp )

I'll be using that one occasionally on Linux Boxes with GNU Tools.

Thanks again.

@vonbiber, thank you for the script. I haven't used it yet, since Slackbuilds is new to me, I have been downloading all the info I can find regarding software installation.
I have downloaded Slack Docs, The Slack wiki, Slackware essentials plus all the how to articles and tutorials from the Slackbuild site.
I am going to print all the relevant portions so I have a reference when I start (won't have to rely on memory.)
If you or anyone else is aware of any additional tutorials and how-to's from sources other than the ones
I mentioned, please let me know. More information is always helpful as someone may include advice that
others have omitted.

I just uploaded the latest version of the script. Please download this one.

Below are the steps to set up your printer.
Steps 1, 2, and 3: you must do this as root
1. Build the package
Code:
chmod +x brotherdcp7030.SlackBuild
./brotherdcp7030.SlackBuild
If all goes well, you should see this file in your current directory: brotherdcp7030-2.0.2_1-i386-1_vbi.txz

Before you install the package make sure, in case you're running a 64-bit system,
that you have these 3 packages installed:

Code:
ls /var/log/packages/cups*compat32* /var/log/packages/glibc-solibs-*multilib* 2>/dev/null
This should return something like:
Code:
/var/log/packages/cups-filters-compat32-1.5.4-x86_64-2compat32.txz
/var/log/packages/cups-compat32-1.5.4-x86_64-4_slack14.1compat32
/var/log/packages/glibc-solibs-2.17_multilib-x86_64-10alien
If not, see the note in x86readme.txt

2. Install the package:
Code:
installpkg brotherdcp7030-2.0.2_1-i386-1_vbi.txz
3. Make sure that cups is running
Code:
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.cups
/etc/rc.d/rc.cups restart
Next, open a web browser and go to this address: http://localhost:631
Click on 'Adding Printers and Classes' (under CUPS for Administrators)
You'll be prompted for the root password.
Hopefully you should see your printer model in the list ...

Let me know how it went

Good luck!

vonbiber --

Just now downloaded your latest brotherdcp7030.SlackBuild and rebuilt brotherdcp7030-2.0.2_1-i386-1_vbi.txz

I checked the content of the Package.tgz file and the doinst.sh script.

It looks great !

The x86_64readme.txt file is very clear -- this package is 32-bit-only and x86_64readme.txt tells me exactly what I would need to do to be able to run on a pure-64-bit Slackware Machine.

Everything in the package seems to be in the correct directory and the install/doinst.sh script oughta work as expected.

Thanks for the new SlackBuild. It's a keeper !


offgridguy --

In addition to vonbiber's recommendations, this is how I approach new SlackBuilds ...

I think you've mentioned all the off-site info I know about.

One more thing you might want to look at on your Slackware Machine is: man makepkg

Lot's of tasty tidbits in there straight from the horse's mouth ( volkerdi ).

Another thing I LOVE about Slackware is that volkerdi's Package Management tools are Shell Scripts !

One can browse his *pkg scripts to see how they work ( and learn some handy scripting tricks too )

Moreover, the Package DataBase on Slackware is a set of text files in /var/log/packages/

If you've ever hosed your YUM DataBase on a RHEL, CentOS, or Fedora Box, you'll REALLY appreciate the text file DataBase on Slackware !!!

Another nice thing about SlackBuilds is that ALMOST ALL of them are non-destructive ( vonbiber's SlackBuild is non-destructive ).

IOW, you won't affect your machine by simply running vonbiber's brotherdcp7030.SlackBuild Script as long as you've got enough disk space.

There are exceptions to the ALMOST ALL rule.

Be careful with taking SlackBuilds from unknown sources.

Look at the SlackBuild Script before you run it !

If you can't inspect the SlackBuild Script ( say it is compiled or otherwise obfusticated ), then don't run it on your System unless you KNOW for sure what it does !

As a rule, if you stick to official Slackware SlackBuilds and SlackBuilds from SlackBuilds.org, you'll be OK.

Once you've got a Package, you can look inside the .t?z file with a simple tar -tvf command ( see below[1] ).

Many, if not most Packages will include an install/doinst.sh script which I often check before I run installpkg on the new Package ( see below[2] )

Once you've verified the contents of the Package and maybe looked at the doinst.sh script, installation can be as simple as installpkg <<PkgName>> or upgradepkg --install-new <<PkgName>>

If you use one of the advanced Package Managers like slackpkg I am not sure how to proceed ...

I am a luddite when it comes to my Package Management ( I only use volkerdi's tools ) so I don't know how the advanced systems work with non-standard Packages.

Maybe others can help with that ...

HTH.

Thanks for the comments. Great complementary advice
Now, we'll have to see what offgridguy has to say.

When I try to build a package from a deb or an rpm, I often have to
sift through a lot of cruft, and it doesn't always work the first time.
I guess I'm spoiled by slackware's logic ...

Boy howdy !

The Brother RPM Packages can be a real mess, can't they ?

I downloaded several of them from the Brother Site and looked at the contents ( rpm -qil -p <<package.rpm>> ) hoping to maybe generalize what you've done.

I don't know how to do that though.

Even their file names are all over the place where it would be difficult to extract the MODEL and VERSION from the FileName.

The Version, Release and Architecture are in the rpm info output. Example, here is offgridguy's 7030 Printer:
Code:
# rpm -qi -p cupswrapperDCP7030-2.0.2-1.i386.rpm

Name        : cupswrapperDCP7030
Version     : 2.0.2
Release     : 1
Architecture: i386
Install Date: (not installed)
Group       : Utilities/System
Size        : 89050
License     : Copyright Brother Industries,Ltd -2005
Signature   : (none)
Source RPM  : cupswrapperDCP7030-2.0.2-1.src.rpm
Build Date  : Thu Jan 24 20:29:46 2008
Build Host  : localhost
Relocations : (not relocatable)
URL         : www.brother.com
Summary     : Brother DCP7030 CUPS wrapper driver
Description :
Brother DCP7030 CUPS wrapper driver
But then, they seem to install in /opt/ or /etc/opt/ or /usr/local/ or ... /???/ ... depending on ??? what ??? so generalizing a SlackBuild to handle ANY Brother Printer Driver RPM File would be tough.

Anyhow, thanks again.

You've now got your very own, special vonbiber-SlackBuilds/ directory in my /home/dld/Brother/ root directory

Tell me about it!
When I first started looking at the 7030 printer RPMs, based on what I've seen in the 2030,
I expect the same file structure: /opt, ...
and I was too hoping that it was just a matter of adapting the previous SlackBuild
If you have other brother printers (and links to their RPMs or debs), maybe between the two of us
(and perhaps other people interested) we could come up with a SlackBuild. Let me know.

Thanks again for your contributions

@ vonbiber.
I apologize that I have to bother you with this, I am very inexperienced with this procedure.
I downloaded and installed the required 32 bit packages. I downloaded the script.
When I execute the command, I get this error message.

bash-4.2# chmod +x brotherdcp7030.SlackBuild
bash-4.2# ./brotherdcp7030.SlackBuild
couldn't find the cups rpm archive
couldn't find the lpr rpm archive
bash-4.2#

I must be doing something wrong, but I'm not sure what.
I downloaded the other packages, as well as the script, it's all here in my downloads.

These files:
brdcp7030lpr-2.0.2-1.i386.rpm
and
cupswrapperDCP7030-2.0.2-1.i386.rpm

should be placed in the same folder as brotherdcp7030.SlackBuild

You can download them from the same address as the SlackBuild:

I do have a Slackware 14.2 install CD 32 bit ordered as I am going to restore another older laptop. The 32 bit will also work on this machine
as well, I have used it in the past.

There was an error. I fixed it.
Please, replace the SlackBuild you have with this one:
http://vonbiber.byethost17.com/slack...030.SlackBuild

or you can edit the SlackBuild you have: go to line 161, and replace the line
Code:
if [ ! -e /var/spool/lpd ]
by this line
Code:
if [ ! -e /var/spool/lpd ]; then

Thank you again.
I have created a new folder named brother and moved these files into it.

Yet the cups-filter still seems to be missing.

Slackware package maker, version 3.14159.

Searching for symbolic links:

No symbolic links were found, so we won't make an installation script.
You can make your own later in ./install/doinst.sh and rebuild the
package if you like.

This next step is optional - you can set the directories in your package
to some sane permissions. If any of the directories in your package have
special permissions, then DO NOT reset them here!

Would you like to reset all directory permissions to 755 (drwxr-xr-x) and
directory ownerships to root.root ([y]es, [n]o)? n

I can wait until I get my 32 bit install CD, if that will change anything?
