Reported upstream.
Comment 3 Till Kamppeter 2007-01-23 19:26:29 EST
The driver is already in the upstream package, in the addons/ directory. See my
comment in the upstream report:


Please make sure that you build with

./configure --with-drivers=ALL

for the distro. This is not an upstream problem, but a packaging problem in FC6.

Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2007-01-24 05:31:27 EST
Er.. the configure help output says that ALL is the default for that option. 
How is it not a CUPS bug that omitting '--with-drivers=ALL' has any effect?
Comment 5 Till Kamppeter 2007-01-24 05:36:58 EST
Then post a new STR against ESP GhostScript reporting that the "./configure
--help" output is wrong concerning the "--with-drivers" option.
Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2007-02-06 05:38:16 EST
Please try ghostscript-8.15.3-4.fc6 from updates-testing:

yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update 'ghostscript*'
Comment 7 Henning Norén 2007-02-13 15:43:56 EST
Sorry for the late reply, but I did not have any quick access to the printer.
But, now I got a positive confirmation that the updated package fixes the issue.

Thank you so much for your help with this.
