amenditman Posted September 12, 2012 Share Posted September 12, 2012 I just replaced my old HP All-In-One which has been giving me fits for about 3 years. It finally died and let me off the merry-go-round. I got a Brother (they have a huge library of Linux drivers) DCP-7065DN monochrome laser with scan and copy. It sets up easy under Mepis because Brother provides rpm and deb packages with instructions and the Mepis wiki entry is easy to follow. I am now up to installing it on my Arch pure systemd desktop, and even though there is a great ArchWiki entry for this printer, it does not yet apply to systemd. Editing files to make it work with Arch Arch Linux uses its own file system organization, so you have to edit some files. Use your text editor (i.e. vi) to open the file named cupswrapperDCP7065DN-2.0.4 If you created the temporary directory "tmp" in your home, this file will be in /home/(your user)/tmp/usr/local/Brother/Printer/DCP7065DN/cupswrapper/cupswrapperDCP7065DN-2.0.4 In this file, you must replace all the /etc/init.d/ occurrences by /etc/rc.d/ and /etc/init.d/cups by /etc/rc.d/cupsd. I need to replace all the /etc/init.d/ and /etc/init.d/cups instances in the file with something designed for the Arch filesystem and systemd, not the /etc/rc.d and /etc/rc.d/cupsd in the instructions. Any suggestions about what to use or where to find instructions? I've looked at the systemd homepage and links, the ArchWiki pages associated with systemd and cups, and the mandatory internet search without finding anything really helpful. My best guess, and it is huge guess, in to use /etc/systemd to replace /etc/init.d and /etc/systemd/cups.service to replace /etc/init.d/cups Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
