VL-6 Standard
Kodak ESP5210 AIO printer at 192.168.1.99

I had attempted to setup Cups but it wouldn't work.

In my browsing, I DL'd c2esp26.tar.gz.  After extracting, I found that it needed to be compiled:
Code:
Dell://home/bruce/Downloads/c2esp26
root:# make
#
# Compile Dependencies general...
#
# Compile Dependencies in cups...
cups api detected 1.3
The cups version up to 1.5 tests
should look in /usr/include/cups/ for image and driver
echo "#define HAVE_CUPSFILTERS 0" >config.h
      ***
      *** Error: /usr/include/cups/driver.h is not installed!
      ***
      *** Install cups driver package
      *** for Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install libcupsdriver1-dev
      ***
make: *** [cups-test] Error 1
It is correct: there is no driver.h in usr/include/cups and I didn't find libcupsdriver1-dev in GSLAPT even in testing.  Found it in Google for Debian or Ubantu.  There are 3 other files listed as dependancies.

So! Which set should I get. And should I expect more surprises?

This kodak driver is part of the vl7.0 repo.   I imagine you have your reasons for staying with VL6.0, but I have to ask have you considered upgrading .... it's free :-).

Because I was having difficulties with VL7 on another pc.  I have plenty of 'broke' machines that I won't break the few that work.

OK. I have VL7.0 running, gslpt c2esp, added KodakESP5200xxx (however it was listed - this was at the bottom of the list.  It did not detect any network printers. it doesn't show when I try from user!) and printed a test page.  Two hours later, it was still processing and I would get a message that the printer wasn't connected.  (During this time, I could print from WinXP.)

Thunar shows a tab Network (yeah!) that lists DELL (failed to open), Dell (this machine), GATEWAY (WinXP), KodakESP5200+7293 (probably the sd reader) and Windows Network.  The latter lists FOWLPLAY and KODAKAIO.
