Thread: leap 42.1 and kprinter

  1. #1

    Default leap 42.1 and kprinter

    To invoke the kde print dialogue the command kdeprint used to work. I believe this was replaced with kdeprint4.

    Installing and running form the command line on Leap 42.1 it returns:
    kprinter4(19734) main: "Wait for STDIN..."

    What is the best way to invoke the kde print dialogue from the command line?

    Are you referring to the KDE print control manager?
    Code:
    kcmshell5 kcm_print_manager

    I am looking for a way to call the kde print dialogue from programmes that only provide a command line print option i.e the gEDA suite.

    I used to use:

    kprinter filename

    there is a kprinter4 now available - https://www.credativ.de/blog/kprinte...nten-mit-kde-4

    but it hangs with the message posted above. I am not using KDE4 but KDE5 and would like to find out if there is a native way to invoke the print dialogue.

    Running kcmshell5 kcm_print_manager returns the following:

    Could not find module 'kcm_print_manager'. See kcmshell5 --list for the full list of modules.

    running kcmshell --list shows kcm_print_manager

    kcm_printer_manager - Configure your printers

    So I don't know what kcmshell5 kcm_print_manager actually does.

    I downloaded the code and recompiled kprinter4 and now it works

    It should have been
    Code:
    ksmshell5 kcm_printer_manager
    If you'd run 'kcmshell5 --list' it would have been listed as one of the available modules.
