Install Gimp-Print by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr --with-testpattern --enable-test && make
To test the results, issue make check.
Now, as the root user:
--with-testpattern: This parameter causes the test pattern generator program to be built.
--enable-test: This parameter causes the programs required by the test suite to be built.
--with-translated-ppds=no: When this switch is given, only US English PPD files for CUPS will be built. Useful if the PPD files are not yet translated into your native language and you want to save some space by not installing unneeded translations.
--enable-cups-level3-ps: This option causes the build process to generate PostScript level 3 PPD files instead of level 2 ones.
For CUPS to see newly installed PPD files, it has to be restarted (as the root user):
This command may take a very long time (up to 10 minutes) to complete. Don't panic while CUPS is rescanning the list of PPD files. The long delay will happen only once.
Then point your web browser to http://localhost:631/ to add a new printer to CUPS.
