***************************************************************************
This intelligent backend is needed to utilize many common dye-sublimation
photo printers under Linux, OSX, and other UNIX-like operating systems.
Although these printers advertise themselves as standard USB Printer Class
devices, they do not actually obey those specifications and require
special two-way handshaking in order to successfully print.
This backend can only be used in conjunction with Gutenprint 5.2.10 or
newer. Please see the Gutenprint README file (section II D) for more
information on use of this backend and integration into CUPS.
Although this backend is bundled with Gutenprint, this repository is
considered the canonical upstream source where all development occurs.
As such, when compared to the current Gutenprint release, the code found
here is often newer, with additional features or device support. At the
same time, it may have half-developed features that don't quite work,
with giant bugs that come out at midnight to eat your cat.
On that note, please keep in mind that this software distributed
in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY WHATSOEVER.
***************************************************************************
This backend also supports a "standalone" mode that performs various
utility functions for selected printers, such as querying status and
configuring various parameters. The exact commands supported for each
printer are documented below.
***************************************************************************
Compilation:
This tool requires libusb 1.0 to build. We highly recommend
v1.0.16 or newer due to general stability improvements. Versions
older than 1.0.10 will require -DLIBUSB_PRE_1_0_10 to be defined
(see the Makefile).
To further complicate things, libusb-1.0 had a temporary fork called
libusbx, but that was merged back into libusb as of v1.0.18.
Consequently, your distribution package for libusb-1.0 may be
called libusbx instead.
Fedora/RedHat:
yum install libusbx-devel libusb1-devel
Debian/Ubuntu
apt-get install libusbx-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev
And all you need to do after that is type 'make'
***************************************************************************
CUPS backend usage:
DEVICE_URI=someuri \
gutenprint52+usb job-id user title num-copies options [ filename ]
***************************************************************************
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. These
commands are equivalent:
BACKEND=backend gutenprint52+usb [ arguments ]
backend [ arguments ]
All backends support the following invocations:
backend [ arguments ]
backend [ arguments ] filename
backend [ arguments ] - < filename
somecommand | backend [ arguments ] -
The 'filename' here refers to the raw spool data generated by
Gutenprint (eg via its gimp plugin) or the Windows print-to-file
output.
All global arguments:
-D Increment debug level [1]
-G Display GPL text
-f Enable fast return mode if possible [2]
-S serno Use SerialNum 'serno' [3]
-V extra_vid [4]
-P extra_pid [4]
-T extra_type [4]
-d numcopies Print 'numcopies' of the supplied job
[1] This argument can be repeated to increase the debug level.
Alternatively, the 'DYESUB_DEBUG' environment variable can be
used.
[2] This terminates the backend as soon as the printer has
acknowledged the print job, without waiting for the print job
to complete. This can also be enabled by setting the
'FAST_RETURN' environment variable. This is the default behavior
when using this backend with CUPS. Not all backends support
fast return.
[3] If you have multiple models of the same printer family connected
simultaneously, the backend will choose the first one it finds.
If you wish to target a specific device, you may specify its
serial number with this switch, or using the 'SERIAL' environment
variable. For example, these are equivalent:
SERIAL=N782 backend filename [ arguments ]
backend -S N782 filename [ arguments ]
[4] All backends support an additional operational mode, to test out
unknown models. To use this mode, specify the VID, PID and its
internal device type as arguments or environment variables:
EXTRA_VID=04a9 EXTRA_PID=3ab1 EXTRA_TYPE=7 backend filename
backend -V 04a9 -P 3ab1 -T 7 filename
The VID and PID are specified in hexidecimal, and the TYPE is
the P_XXX enumeration defined in backend_common.h. The '7' in this
example corresponds to most Canon SELPHY CP models, and is what you
would use if you were trying to get the backend to detect an
otherwise unrecognized SELPHY CP model.
If you are able to successfuly print using this technique,
please let us know so we can add the apppriate entry to the
internal database.
Finally, some backends support additional arguments; see below:

***VERY IMPORTANT*** This backend does NOT work -- At the moment,
a proprietary binary-only library is necessary to convert the input
8bpp YMC data to the 16bpp YMCO data the printer needs. This

and I do not have permission to redistribute it.
