./print/foomatic-filters, Spooler-independent PostScript printing filter

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.0.2nb16, Package name: foomatic-filters-3.0.2nb16, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The foomatic-filters package provides foomatic-rip and foomatic-gswrapper.

foomatic-rip uses an external renderer (like GhostScript) to translate
PostScript to printer's native language. The printer capabilities are
described in PPD files. foomatic-rip works with every known spooler.

foomatic-gswrapper massages arguments to make Ghostscript execute
properly as a filter.


Required to run:
[print/mpage] [print/ghostscript] [lang/perl5]

Required to build:
[pkgtools/cwrappers]

Recursive bump for perl5-5.28.0

Log message:
Bump PKGREVISION on packages depending on CUPS

This should be the last part of the renaming operation for print/cups to
print/cups-base.

Rationale: packages depending on CUPS but not relying on a functional
printing setup only need to depend on print/cups-base (equivalent to the
former print/cups). The new print/cups now depends on print/cups-base
and on print/cups-filters, thus directly providing a functional printing
setup. This bump reflects this change of dependency.

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).

Log message:
Remove mk/find-prefix.mk usage from the print category.

The find-prefix infrastructure was required in a pkgviews world where
packages installed from pkgsrc could have different installation
prefixes, and this was a way for a dependency prefix to be determined.

Now that pkgviews has been removed there is no longer any need for the
overhead of this infrastructure.  Instead we use BUILDLINK_PREFIX.pkg
for dependencies pulled in via buildlink, or LOCALBASE/PREFIX where the
dependency is coming from pkgsrc.

Provides a reasonable performance win due to the reduction of `pkg_info
-qp` calls, some of which were redundant anyway as they were duplicating
the same information provided by BUILDLINK_PREFIX.pkg.
