See ? GhostBSD is a good tool to debug your hardware! :D ;)
yep, and an even better tool to check Your console settings capabilities. got stuck with configuring CUPS with my Epson -USB-Printer via Web-Interface and now trying to figure out why it doesn t find " a list of printer drivers" when comin to step 4 of installation!?
we ll see ;-)

hmm ... unless there is a bug (incorrect location of ppd files ...)

check if the following packages are installed on your system:

Code: Select all

cups-filters-1.11.4_1          Additional backends, filters and other software for CUPS
gutenprint-cups-5.2.10_3       GutenPrint Printer Driver
epson-inkjet-printer-escpr-1.6.9 Epson Inkjet Printer Driver (ESC/P-R) for Linux
depending on the printer model, you might need to download the printer filter from Epson website.

ok,
pkg upgrade -f
# or:
pkg-static upgrade -f
so, if I try this, may I run into a deleted Mate-desktop again after reboot or should this not happen?
Now I am a bit unsure how to install packages as til now pkg or pkg-static ALWAYS wants to delete about 30 packages, upgrade a lot more and add a few as well...
I just don t want to start with a new complete installation again and again!?

That step is REQUIRED upstream (from FreeBSD) only after performing a major upgrade (i.e. from 10.x to 11.x) . Nothing we can do about that.

Other packages (i.e. GhostBSD specific packages) need to be downloaded, built and installed manually.

If you don't want to go thru all that, your option is to wait for GhostBSD 11.x final, and install that.

ok, no problem!
I said, this 11.0 - "adventure" is a testbed for me to learn, as I did with Arch Linux before, to get back to the "console days" when it all started without graphical tools where a click here and there prevent You to learn what happens underneath.... ;-)
As my job(less) situation needs most attention at the moment, bare with me, I ll concentrate on really using Ghost 10.3 for the moment and try with 11.0-prealpha on my stick later!
But thank You ASX and Eric for all of YOUR feedback and patience, really appreciated and gives me a good feeling to help out financially, even if only just a tiny bit... ;)

cheers

One question related to 11.0 upgrade. I don't want to install GhostBSD, only upgrade current 10.3.

Should I wait to ghostbsd 11.0 to be released?, if yes is there any special instruction to upgrade different in comparison with a freebsd upgrade?, should I upgrade with the ghostbsd cd/dvd?

could I upgrade right now as any other FreeBSD 10.3 machine?

This will be the first time I upgrade a ghostbsd system. In the past I upgraded other FreeBSD system, but my main concern it to loose something (ghostbsd scripts or something like that).

Thanks,

Jes

No, but if you can wait until our GhostBSD 11.0 repository will be ready, things would be very simple.
I will write that, but don't take it for 100% sure: should be ready in a couple of weeks. ;)

That should allow for a proper upgrade of all packages, including our own.

Ok. Perfect. No problem with waiting some time. Only to be sure.

Thanks

hi there,

but is it right, that the 11.0 pre-alpha has outdated ports/repositories from freeBSD-side because I couldn t compile anything from ports...
should I update to a newer pre-alpha??
