Authors/Port authors:

The eCUPS project is intended to create a seamless integration of CUPS into OS/2 base Operating Systems, to substitute the old and obsolete IBM original printing support.

CUPS is the standards-based, open source printing system developed by Apple Inc. for macOS® and other UNIX®-like operating systems. CUPS uses the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) to support printing to local and network printers.

This software is distributed in two modes:
  • as compressed package that you have to download and manually install; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too;
  • as RPM package; you can install it using your favorite rpm package manager, that will take care to download and install both the software and its prerequisites.
Choose the installation mode that you prefer. Please note that not all the versions are available in both the installation modes.

Installation with rpm

This program is installable using the rpm package manager. See below for the install string. Required prerequisites are automatically processed by the package manager and, if needed, downloaded and installed.

Ghostscript driver for Gutenprint

Manual installation

Self-installing WarpIN package. See below for download link(s).

CUPS and Gutenprint/Splix need to be extracted into the root directory of the SAME drive - some Gutenprint/Splix files need to be installed into the CUPS directories.
Please see the wiki HowTo at: http://trac.netlabs.org/ecups/wiki/HowTo for more. Also there is a procedure for using Ghostscript as a printer driver for seamless printing. This is useful for printers which are supported by Ghostscript, but not by either OS/2 itself or other CUPS-based drivers; apparently, a lot of Japanese-market Epson printers fall into this category.

You can install the prerequisites with rpm running the following string in a command line:

yum install emxrt libc libcx libgcc1 libssp libstdc++6 libstdc++ libsupc++6 libsupc++ libgcc-fwd ghostscript bc libusb splix gutenprint
