Then it is not an rpm for suse. Find another one built for suse.

Why don't you just install the gutenprint packages for openSUSE 10.3
from the OBS Printing. They are made for openSUSE.

Thanks for replying Joe,

See my reply to Andrew Joakimsen. I did a search for gutenprint on the
SuSE-Novell site. They only have the 5.0.1 driver and according to the new printer requires the 5.0.2lsb3.2 driver. Which
would be installable if 10.3 used lsb3.2 instead of lsb3.1 Hence my
question about upgrading lsb from 3.1 to 3.2.

I already do have the gutenprint-5.0.1 drivers installed

Not sure what you mean by the "OBS Printing". Did I not look in the right

Maybe I'll try a "force" on the rpm.

Marcus? Any advice here?

Replying to my own post with new info.

First of all I kept saying linuxprinting org when I really meant Sorry - onset of dementia.

I then did a --nodeps on the rpm and it installed just fine, Seems to show up
in the right places anyway. The "how to install" info tells you how to make
the lsb3.1 compliant with lsb3.2 so it should work.

Will try the actual install tomorrow. Getting kind of late. Also need to let know about the --nodeps requirement when installing into an
lsb3.1 system.

Hope this helps someone trying to install the new gutenprint-5.0.2 drivers.
