That would allow us to present a 'modern' name for the backend but still provide backwards compatibility.

eg: dnpds40 -> dnp_citizen or mitsu9550 -> mitsu9xxx or mitsup95d->mitsu_p9x

Another approach would be to make things more fine-grained.

...or if they need their own designation in Gutenprint and selphy_print.

It looks like they don't map entirely cleanly to either for avialable print options, but the real question is the firmware version tests for features.

FS#595: When trying to enumerate printers, don't block for a long time when one's busy 2018-02-16T12:11:44Z 2018-02-16T12:11:44Z

This is a particular problem when we have more than one model of the same printer family attached, and one or more of them are busy doing something -- but we can't query the serial number when the printer is claimed.

This may require a two pass approach -- first try to probe everything with minimal timeouts.  If we don't succeed in finding the one we want, re-try the probe with longer timeouts.  In both cases, we shouldn't report a failure until we finish walking the entire list.

FS#521: Investigate HiTi 720L/750L and 510L/520L/525L, P310W and others? 2018-02-02T21:22:17Z 2014-02-27T15:47:46Z

P310W is consumer model.

Rest are workhorse kiosk printers, it's currently the cheapest per-print, 300dpi.

Gutenprint seems to support no HiTi models at all.

Early investigation into these models shows that the spooler format is some sort of funky compressed format -- and the data actually sent to the printer is ratehr different.

So no progress will be made without direct access to one or more HiTi printers.

300 dpi, 4" or 5" wide media.

Not sure if it uses sheet or roll media.

FS#540: Investigate Fuji ASK 2000/2500/4000 (aka Nidec Copal DPB-6000/7000/4000) 2018-01-27T11:36:46Z 2015-08-26T04:22:51Z

They are all related; The 4000 is an 8" version, and the 2000 is an older, slower version of the 2500, both 6" models.


All are rebadged versions of Nidec Copal printers -- ASK4000 == DPB-4000C1, ASK2500 == DPB-7000, ASK2000 == DPB-6000

FS#591: Investigate Kodak DL2100 2018-01-27T01:27:42Z 2018-01-26T01:51:20Z

It's a duplexing "electro-photographic" (AKA laser) printer @600x1200dpi.  They rarget photo books and calendars with it.


Appears to be a rebranded version of the Oki C712.

The CP-W5000 is a duplex 8" model, apparenltly a rebadged Kodak D4000

Duplexing 8x12" models, capable of cuts along both axes.
