View Full Version : [SOLVED] [BASH] lphelp not found - Converting script for Ubuntu

August 14th, 2008, 04:47 PM
I'm trying to compile the drivers for a Star TSP100 printer in Ubuntu. When I run make it compiles the source ok, but I get an error when it tries to create the docs:

#get ppd options via lphelp
lphelp ppd/sp512.ppd >> docs/sp512-options.txt
/bin/sh: lphelp: not found
make: *** [sp512-options.txt] Error 127
From what I can tell it seems that lphelp is a red hat thing (tho maybe I'm wrong).

Anyway I opened the makefile and it does this:

docs: $(lphelpdocs)

$(lphelpdocs): %-options.txt: %.ppd
@if [ ! -e docs ]; then echo "mkdir docs"; mkdir docs; fi
#get ppd options via lphelp
lphelp $< >> docs/$@
If possible I want to convert the lphelp bit to something that does the equivalent on Ubuntu. Anyone know how I can do this?


Edit: Actually I dont need to do this any more; found out that someone has been here before and converted the scripts for debian.
