./print/cups, Common UNIX Printing System

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.2.6nb1, Package name: cups-2.2.6nb1, Maintainer: sbd

The Common UNIX Printing System provides a portable printing layer for
UNIX operating systems. It has been developed by Easy Software Products
to promote a standard printing solution for all UNIX vendors and users.
CUPS provides the System V and Berkeley command-line interfaces.

CUPS uses the Internet Printing Protocol (IETF-IPP) as the basis for
managing print jobs and queues. The Line Printer Daemon (LPD, RFC1179)
and AppSocket protocols are also supported with reduced functionality.

CUPS adds network printer browsing and PostScript Printer Description
("PPD")-based printing options to support real world applications under

This is a meta-package for installing CUPS and the necessary backends,
filters, and other software that is required for using printer drivers
from CUPS 1.6.0 on.

Bump PKGREVISION for gdbm shlib major bump
   2017-12-02 21:02:35 by Leonardo Taccari | Files touched by this commit (5) | Package updated
Log message:
cups{,-base}: Update print/cups{,-base} to 2.2.6

pkgsrc changes:
- s/ghostscript/cups-filters/ in MESSAGE (most missing parts needed to use
  non-PS printers are provided by print/cups-filters)
- Define GITHUB_PROJECT to just `cups' (not `cups-base', as PKGBASE).
  This fixes fetching of the distfile from the MASTER_SITES.

CUPS v2.2.6
- DBUS notifications could crash the scheduler (Issue #5143)
- Added USB quirks rules for Canon MP540 and Samsung ML-2160 (Issue #5148)
- Fixed TLS cipher suite selection with GNU TLS (Issue #5145, Issue #5150)
- Localization updates (Issue #5152)

Log message:
Update dependencies on print/cups to print/cups-base

This is with the notable exception of meta-pkgs/desktop-gnome, which I
believe implies a fully functional cups.

This is still missing revision bumps - I'll be right there (first time I
am doing this on so many packages at a time).

As discussed on tech-pkg@

Log message:
Rename print/cups to print/cups-base to depend on cups-filters

This change:
- renames print/cups to print/cups-base,
- lets print/cups-filters depend on print/cups-base instead of cups,
- adds a package print/cups depending on print/cups-base and

This makes sure installing print/cups always installs
print/cups-filters, as it is necessary for being able to print outside
of Mac OS X since CUPS 1.6.0. You're welcome.

I do not think superseding is necessary, since print/cups will also
install print/cups-base, which really is the same as before. In practice
it is like a new dependency. I do not want to risk a bad "cvs import"
either, sorry.

Bumps PKGREVISION for print/cups and print/cups-filters, since they have
new dependencies now. This is also necessary for everything else currently
depending on print/cups; I will try to commit this right after this one.

Tested on NetBSD/amd64, as reviewed on tech-pkg@.
No breakage observed, apologies if anything goes wrong.

print/cups{,15}: Don't make ${CUPS_CONFDIR} with INSTALLATION_DIRS.

${CUPS_CONFDIR} (${PKG_SYSCONFDIR}) may be located outside of

Remove ${CUPS_CONFDIR} from INSTALLATION_DIRS since it is created
