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 Summary  asc Status Last Edited
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.

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 (?)

548Feature RequestShinko CHC-S6145/S2245Add support for Sinfonia CHC-S6145-5A (aka CS2-c)New2019-06-04 Task Description

It's a card-sized variant of the CS2.  89mm cards of various widths.

585Feature RequestZebra printersAdd support for Zebra ID card printers.New2020-03-17 Task Description

I have a P120i that is in perfect working order.

651Feature RequestSony UP-D printersbrightness/contrast, etc on the UP-D898 familyNew2021-09-08 Task Description

There's presumably a way to configure this stuff from the host side,  In a FILE output mode the Windows drivers don't allow these settings to be changed, so to make this happen I'll have to obtain sniffs.

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.

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...

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

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.

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..

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..

572Feature RequestMitsubishi MedSciFigure out how to set printer sharpening on the P95DNew2020-02-27 Task Description

The P93D supports it via the driver, but the P95D doesn't.  However, it can be set on the front panel..  It's in there somewhere, I bet.

Bonus -- Can we enable/disable iserial support?

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.

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.

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..)

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.

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.

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

590Feature RequestOther printersInvestigate Kodak D4600 / Mitsubishi CP-W5000New2019-07-08 Task Description

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

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.

500TODOOther printersInvestigate Shinko S8145New2019-05-23 Task Description

The T1/S8145 is a fancy "silver foil" thingey with two print heads.

557Feature RequestSony UP-D printersInvestigate Sony DPP-FP30New2019-03-26 Task Description

And other members of that consumer printer family.  Not sure if they're still relevant commercially.

520Feature RequestSony UP-D printersInvestigate Sony UP-CR20L aka DNP SL-20Requires testing2020-11-10 Task Description

Sony sold their printer line to DNP, which rebranded these two models.

Investigate their Spool format, and find out if they need an intelligent backend.

663Feature RequestCommon CodeMake backend capable of parsing PPD optionsNew2021-10-28 Task Description

The goal here is to make FastReturn a runtime option specified through the PPD, as not every spool file format can be extended to add this awareness.

Implementing this would probaably reqire the backend to depend on libcups and its PPD/option parsing stuff.

 

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..
