Description Joachim Backes 2000-12-14 01:53:12 EST
Printing with RedHat 7.0 fails if the printer is
connected to some network connected BSD system
(I didn't try printing for directly connected

The problem is the following: I inspectected 
/var/spool/lpd/myprinter (for ex.) and found out that
the filter script "filter" is a link to 



When deleting the link "filter" and exchanging it by a
direct copy of /usr/lib/rhs/rhs-printfilters//master-filter
and calling "chmod o+x filter", the problem is away.

Comment 1 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-02-01 20:04:56 EST
I have no idea why that would fix it.
Could you return the result of and past it into the bug report?:

ls -l /usr/lib/rhs/rhs-printfilters/master-filter
Comment 2 Joachim Backes 2001-02-02 01:58:31 EST
The problem disappeared after a complete new installation
of RH 7.0 (Previously, my RH 7.0 was an update made over RH 6.2).
Comment 3 Joachim Backes 2001-03-14 00:56:28 EST
After removing the rpms

and reinstalling printtool and rhs-printfilters from the RH Disk1
and installing LPRng-3.7.4-1.i386.rpm, the problem disappeared.
