CUPS backend usage:
The simple method is to use Gutenprint 5.2.10 or newer, which bundles
(possibly older versions of) these backends. Without Gutenprint to
rasterize the print data, these backends are useless.
(possibly older versions of) this backend. Without Gutenprint to
rasterize the print data, this backend is useless.
The backends need to be owned by root, with 0700 file permissions in order
to function properly.
The backend is called 'gutenprint+usb', and must be installed with 0700
file permissions and owned by root in order to function properly.
To install these backends for use with CUPS, simply type 'make install'.

You may need to restart CUPS afterwards.

***************************************************************************
Standalone usage:
This backend is set up as a multi-call executable; that is to say
behaivor changes based on the name used to invoke the executable.
When compiled, a set of symlinks are created, corresponding to each
of the internal backends. Alternatively you may set the BACKEND
environment variable to force a specific backend to be used:
BACKEND=backend \
gutenprint [ args ]
(OR)
backend [ args ]
That said, all internal backends support these invocation options
backend filename
backend - < filename
somecommand | backend -
backend [ backend-specific-argument ]
[[ where 'backend' is the program name, eg 'canon-selphy_print' ]]
The 'filename' here refers to the raw spool data generated by
Gutenprint (eg via its gimp plugin) or the Windows print-to-file
output.
NOTE: The 'filename' here refers to the raw spool data generated by
Gutenprint (eg via its gimp plugin) or the Windows print-to-file
output.
If there is more than one device present that the backend handles,
the backend will choose the first supported device it finds. If you
wish to specify the specific device when operating in standalone
mode, set the 'DEVICE' environment variable to the target device's
serial number. For example:

All backends support an additional operational mode, to test out
unknown models. To use this mode, specify the VID, PID and its
type as environment variables. For example:

EXTRA_VID=04a9 EXTRA_PID=3ab1 EXTRA_TYPE=3 backend filename

EXTRA_VID is the USB VID, in hex
EXTRA_PID is the USB PID, in hex
EXTRA_TYPE is: 3 for SELPHY CP790
4 for SELPHY CP520 (or other CP-series model)

If you have a model the spooler doesn't recognize but it works with
a VID/PID/TYPE specification, please let me know via e-mail.
