Gutenprint / CUPS Dye-sublimation drivers

This is my personal to-do list for printer-related tasks, encompassing both Gutenprint (http://gimp-print.sf.net) development and CUPS backend work (http://git.shaftnet.org/cgit/selphy_print.git)

ID Task Type Category  asc Summary Status Last Edited
655TODOCanon Selphy CP/ESFigure out if matte printing is possible on SelphyNeo m...New2021-03-04 Task Description

If you print from the printer's UI, it allows you to select various overcoat patterns -- glossy, a matte-like texture, a finer matte texture, and for some, a fine grid pattern.

The windows drivers don't seem to export this at all.  See if this is a fluke.

630TODOCanon Selphy CP/ESInvestigate port 59223 on wifi-enabled Selphy modelsResearching2021-06-10 Task Description

On CP900, CP910, CP1200, and CP1300, a telnet interface is present on port 59223. Upon connecting, it prompts for an unknown password.

580Bug ReportCanon Selphy CP/ESDetect when on battery power and handle it gracefullyNew2021-03-04 Task Description

User reported the CP800 failed to print when on battery power, turns out one of the status fields changed causing us to fail.  I believe that's resovled for the older SELPHY CP models, but the newer ones (including the CP790) and the ES series are likely to have a similar problem.

Not sure what can be done about this without getting the battery and experimenting...

662Feature RequestCommon CodeAdd support for more STATEs and ATTRibutesNew2021-09-30 Task Description

Most of these wll need to be added on a per-family basis, though some at least can be handled in the markers code.

From CUPS:

cover-open, input-tray-missing, marker-supply-empty, marker-supply-low, media-empty, paused, timed-out

RFC8011:

other, door-open, interlock-open, media-jam, media-low, output-tray-missing, shutdown,

Modern CUPS:

marker-print-ribbon-almost-empty, marker-print-ribbon-empty, marker-print-ribbon-missing, output-tray-missing, power-down, power-up, subunit-warming-up, document-format-error (?)

641TODOCommon CodeRewrite README into more structured ocumentationNew2020-03-05 Task Description

I'd like to use this as an opportunity to learn ReStructuredText, and the Sphinx documentation system.

How far I take this is another matter..

608TODOCommon CodeMake Gutenprint more cross-compile friendlyNew2020-03-27 Task Description

The problem is that, at compile time, we rely on some host-compiled stuff to generate data files and whatnot. We need to compile the same stuff for the target.

I wonder if it may be worth moving to a more unified Make environment..

658Feature RequestDNP/CitizenSupport the citizen cx-02-sNew2021-05-16 Task Description

it's an "enhanced" verison of the CX02, but it supports sticker media.  Figure out if it has a different USB ID and what all needs changing.

633Feature RequestDNP/CitizenSupport Panorama on DS620 and DS820 familiesResearching2021-07-13 Task Description

DS620 supports 6x14 and 6x20" prints, and DS820 supports 8x18/8x26 and 8x20/8x32 sizes.

639TODOHiTi familyAdd job combining support for HiTi familyNew2020-01-22 Task Description

P520/P525 and P720/P750

3.5x5 -> 7x5

4x6 -> 8x6

Combined size is slightly smaller (4 and 23 rows respectively) so we'd have to trim the ends off. Not a big deal.

While I have a P520 printer, I don't have the necessary media to test this.

629Feature RequestHiTi familySupport the HiTi CS-2xx card models.New2019-10-05 Task Description

HiTi supplied source code, in an "open source all rights reserved" drop

521Feature RequestHiTi familyInvestigate HiTi 510L, P530D, P310W, X610, and others?Waiting on Customer2021-04-19 Task Description

P310W is consumer model; the rest are workhorse kiosk printers.

P530D is a duplexing variant of the P52x series. 

X610 is a tandem printhead high-throughput model that can spit out panoramas over 4 feet long.

P510 series has a binary-only driver but HiTi has provided sources.

aP110 series has a binary-only driver

659Feature RequestKodak 605/70xxsupport "watermarking" on the EK70xx seriesNew2021-05-16 Task Description

Kodak's feature set refers to a textual "watermark" on the print surface.  This is presumably the same as DNP's "parial matte" feature.

Figure out how to mak ethis happen.

624Feature RequestKodak 605/70xxFigure out backprinting on Kodak 7010 and 7015Requires testing2019-09-23 Task Description

No documentation, no driver option, no idea how to drive it

588Bug ReportMagicard familyRegistration/Alignment issue with Black planeNew2018-01-04 Task Description

K extraction appears to work well, but when printing there's a registration problem.  The black layer appears to print several pixels higher than the color layers.

I'm not sure if this is something that needs a fixed offset applied, or is something that can vary printer-printer.

569Feature RequestMitsubishi CP9xxx familyFigure out image processing algorithms for CP-98xx fami...Requires testing2020-06-20 Task Description

They're an older-generation of the D70 family's.  Data tables are unfortunately embedded inside the drivers, which makes this a lot more challenging. Sigh.

(If nothing else, simply obtaining the RGB->YMC conversion/gamma tables would make the printers immediately useful..)

565Feature RequestMitsubishi CP9xxx familyCP-9600 family supposedly supports some sort of multicu...New2017-03-23 Task Description

http://www.mitsubishi-photo.cz/drivers/drivers_printers/cz_en/(%20+firmwaredrivers_printers_digi_en.htm

This references a lot of firmware images, including 'Firmware CP9600 for 13x18,10x15(x2),11.5x15(x2).zip -- None of those sizes are covered in the current Gutenprint code.

660Feature RequestMitsubishi CP-Dxx familyFigure out how to decode cut count and skip count on D7...New2021-05-16 Task Description

Cut count is on all of them but the guess is that it's only present in the eeprom dump rather than per-deck info.

Skip count is on all printers that can rewind (I think) -- ie K60, D80, EK305.  Also probably only in the eeprom dump instead of per-deck info.

657Feature RequestMitsubishi CP-Dxx familyQuery and set vertical calibrationAssigned2021-05-16 Task Description

A user has a EK305 that cuts about 1mm off.  Mitsubshi's service manuals reference a "Service Tool" that can adjust this calibration (and other things)

656TODOMitsubishi CP-Dxx familyValidate / Test Fujifilm ASK-500Waiting on Customer2021-03-31 Task Description

It's a rebadged CP-M1.  Backend support is theoretically complete (except for the USB VID/PID).  No gutenprint frontend work yet; I'll hold off on that until I know the backend functions properly.

635Feature RequestMitsubishi CP-Dxx familyFigure out job control / pipelining on D90 & M1New2020-03-05 Task Description

We can tell if the printer is idle or busy, but don't know how to query active jobs, free buffers, and so forth.

632Feature RequestMitsubishi CP-Dxx familySupport Panorama on CP-D90DW familyRequires testing2021-07-13 Task Description

Printer supports combining two or three 6x8 prints into 6x14 or 6x20 panoramas. Figure out how to do this.

613Feature RequestMitsubishi CP-Dxx familyFigure out how to pipeline jobs with D70 familyNew2021-02-20 Task Description

Right now the backend won't attempt to send anything over if a given deck is printing. However, the printer has 4*num_banks buffers that can be used to pipeline jobs!

So, try to figure out a way to overlap things. We'll have to be smarter about jobids..

568TODOMitsubishi CP-Dxx familyFigure out how to set the "user string" that's supposed...New2017-03-23 Task Description

There's a proper serial number returned so that's not so critical.

567Feature RequestMitsubishi CP-Dxx familyFigure out how to query the overall job status on the D...New2017-03-23 Task Description

The command I know about just returns an endless status stream..

653Feature RequestMitsubishi MedSciImplement Sharpening on the CP9xxx and CP30 printer fam...New2020-12-06 Task Description

I _think_ it's the same algorithm for both.  So use the CP30 to work out what's needed, and test it out.

The library API is already there, so once ready it should just be drop-innable.

Note:  This will also require extracting the data tables from the CP30 driver.
