    Default What happened to photoprint

    In Leap 42.3 I could use the program photoprint to print (or all things) photographs on my HP printer. In 15.0, photoprint is no longer available. I tried loading the 42.3 version, but that requires liblcms which is no longer available, but seems to have been replaced by liblcms2. So my question is where can I find a replacement for photoprint, or how can I get photoprint working?

    Thanks for any help

    A quick search of https://software.opensuse.org/search (with 'Show development packages' enabled) shows that liblcms is available from the multimedia:libs repo...

    https://software.opensuse.org/package/liblcms-devel

    Hope that helps. If not, consider contacting the developer directly.

    Looking at the build status of the Photo Print package, it seems that, for Leap 15.0 and Tumbleweed, there's an unresolvable blocking issue …

    I've checked the package, it's been unmaintained for > 5 years. I'll try and see if it builds for Leap 15.0

    It's been almost 7 years based on this message from the developer...

    Yes, I tried building from the tarball yesterday and failed with respect to liblcms.(despite installing liblcms-devel). I didn't attempt to research further though.

    Since it does build on Leap 42.3, I suspect the gcc versions of 15.0 and Tw too new.
