Description Sammy 2007-12-08 21:52:42 UTC
There is a problem with some files with so build and stdin redirection under
ghostscript 8.61. This is related to bugzilla bug #416321 and resolution
is suggested in ghostscript bugzilla:

http://bugs.ghostscript.com/show_bug.cgi?id=689577

The change needed seems to be:

If your printer uses a CUPS raster driver, the /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstoraster
needs to be patched. Replace the line

ifile="-"

by

ifile="-_"

Comment 1 Sammy 2007-12-09 16:34:48 UTC
A patch for this was committed to ghostscript trunk that is submitted to
bug #416321. However, the above changes may still help and future problems
with the same issue. 

Comment 2 Sammy 2007-12-10 14:19:19 UTC
Ghostscript people are recommending to make the above change because it
is more "efficient" piping and would avoid future changes.
