Need csh to install Brother mfc420cn
« on: August 14, 2007, 08:24:17 pm »
I have googled until my finger nails fell off. unable to find a csh.rpm apparently the oldies are no longer around.
then I tried using alien to convert a csh.deb to csh.rpm, I thought i had it but apparently a internal error in the conversion
process, I used the command  alien -r  csh.deb  it created a csh.rpm , really need this csh to proceed with the install of the brother,
I was able to install the lpr driver for brother but its the cupswrapper that wants the csh. any ideas how I might get this csh ?
I suspect if the source files could be gotten then they could be compiled but i am at a loss, I have checked out the sources listed
by granny in her suggestions for sources but ran into a dead end.

this may help:

tcsh (C shell)

tcsh is an enhanced but completely compatible version of the Berkeley
UNIX C shell, csh(1). It is a command language interpreter usable both
as an interactive login shell and a shell script command processor. It
includes a command-line editor, programmable word completion, spelling
correction, a history mechanism, job control, and a C-like syntax.

I had decided that perhaps that replacement was the right one for the job, it installed easily. thank you .
