use wifi printer via IP generated by DHCP

Hi all,

I’ve recently purchased an Epson NX515 printer.

In 11.2 I’m trying to set it up similarly to a Mac that I did for a friend.

Is it possible to set up network printing in Yast specifying that Suse use dhcp to get the ip (rather than specifiing manual IP/port configurations?

I’ve seen that someone in Ubuntuland had success with manual specification

[all variants] scanning w/ Epson nx515 [Archive] - Ubuntu Forums](

Is that the best way to go?

I’ve downloaded the cups source from avasys, and was trying to compile the driver, but get the following error when compiling the “pipslite-1.4.0”. I’m operating in a KDE environment, and have dowloaded in Yast what I think are the right packages (imlib) I assume I don’t need to install the base gnome libs right?

checking for GDK_IMLIB… configure: error: Package requirements (imlibgdk) were not met:

No package ‘imlibgdk’ found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables GDK_IMLIB_CFLAGS
and GDK_IMLIB_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

There are precompiled rpms for 11.1 but I assume its safe to say that these won’t work with 11.2?
