@Luciano-S. okayz! will look into it when I am free. Thanks!
thanks for the good explanation on how to run p910nd on an Omega!
I have the Omega2+, and I am trying to get my printer (Samsung ml-2850d) running with p910nd. I have a USB cable soldered directly to the Omega2 as power supply with a 3.3V voltage regulator inbetween. Then I connect the printer via USB directly to the D- and D+ pins of the Omega2 board (pin out).
The problem is, that I do not see my printer under /dev/usb/. I am not sure whether the printer needs the gnd and v+ connection from the board to be recognized or if it's not supported?
@Nils-Flaschel I am not sure as I have not done with physical wiring to the board. I am using a dock currently. Will be looking to remove the dock when I have time to figure everything out. You could try providing a 5V to V+ and ground to V-.
When I try to
opkg install p910nd
it says :
Unknown package 'p910nd'. Collected errors: * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package p910nd.
Why is this like that. I would like to build a print server with my Omega 2. My Router runs DD-WRT

i tried to get the printer server online but I always get the error: usblp module was not found while installing the kmod-usb2.
Has the kernel been changed? I thought it should have the usb printer support activated...
(I'm using a Omega2 for this project)
Any way we can get it to work with other printers too? or maybe compile cups for the omega?
opkg install kmod-usb2 --force-depends
Hi, I tried to follow your steps but getting stuck at the installation of kmod-usb2 and kmod-usb-printer. I am using Omega2+.
The same error message:
pkg_run_script: package "kmod-usb-printer" postinst script returned status 255.
opkg_configure: kmod-usb-printer.postinst returned 255.
/dev/usb/lp0 won't show up for me.
kmod-usb2 and kmod-usb-printer are installed
Unplugging/plugging printer cable yields:
[ 1441.830049] usb 2-1: USB disconnect, device number 4 [ 1446.755533] usb 2-1: new full-speed USB device number 5 using ohci-platform
Was working until I rebooted the device. Any clues?
EDIT: OK, this was incredibly nasty, but this is how you fix it:
wget these two:
Then opkg install both of them by filename, using the --force-depends option
It seems the LEDE repo feeds, while an interesting idea, might be too much of a moving target. Even the .ipks downloaded from the links above are not an exact match for the kernel, but on my system close enough to make things work.
