rpm2txz

Post by noob51 »

Hi,
I don't see rpm2txz installed, I need that to install my brother ds 740 usb scanner, rpm2tgz desn't seem to work.
The scanner worked in slackware 15 rc2, but only as root.

Any suggestions.

After installing the package, do

Code: Select all

which rpm2txz
or

Code: Select all

type -p rpm2txz
in the command line. This tells you if the binary or script is installed and in $PATH.

To anyone who has a brother ds 740 scanner, I reinstalled salix 15 full install, installed rpm2tgz, converted brscan5.rpm, installed simple-scan,
Installed Avahi daemon, made sure user is in scanner group. Scanner now works as regular user & root user. no need to add entry to 80-libsane.rules
