Comment 3 rdt 2002-01-04 01:46:39 UTC
it seems to have been an old not-uninstalled binary of gs-7.01 in /usr/local/bin that was causing my problem. What isn't clear is why it was It seems to have been an old not-uninstalled binary of gs-7.01 (which was seriously broken) in /usr/local/bin that was causing my problem. What isn't clear is why it was being used. which gs gave /usr/bin/gs and gs --version gave gs-6.51 (or 7.03). But 7.01 was mentioned in status.lp; I would guess there is a faulty path in one of the scripts.

Okay, this seems to come from lpdomatic, which is part of the foomatic package.
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2002-01-30 13:45:18 UTC
Arguably this is the correct behaviour: /usr/local is where package overrides can go. But I think in this context it's not really all that appropriate. Fixing..

> Arguably this is the correct behaviour: /usr/local is where package overrides can go. The default PATH would appear to be /bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/X11R6/bin so /usr/bin/ overrides /usr/local/bin/
