Converting the Novell iPrint client to a Debian package

Jurjen Bokma

April 2008


The path to /var/opt/novell/log seems to be hardcoded into several binaries and not configurable in /etc/libiprint.conf. So in /etc/libiprint.conf, the line TraceLevel off should remain. Alternatively, we could recompile from source, which we didn't do here.


Please note that the resulting Debian package doesn't have all dependencies properly listed, and it isn't signed. It wouldn't be much use in a serious repository.
