Description Klaus Steinberger 2002-07-23 08:05:39 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020711

Description of problem:
Cups starting with version 1.1.15 did not include the pstoraster filter, instead
it depends on ghostscript, otherwise some drivers for cups (i.e. any driver from
gimp-print-cups) will not work.

So please add the patch which is in the cups source in the directory
pstoraster to the ghostscript build, or use the modified ghostscript from ESP.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. select a printer driver in cups from gimp-print-cups (e.g. EPSON Stylus Color
680, CUPS+GIMP-print v4.2.1 (en))
2. try to print the test page

Actual Results:  in /var/log/cups/error_log the following will be logged:
E [23/Jul/2002:14:03:34 +0200] Unable to convert file 0 to printable format for
job 178!

We are not changing to ESP Ghostscript just yet.  Since CUPS is the only thing 
that _uses_ this utility, it belongs in the CUPS package.

pstoraster files added in cups-1.1.15-7. 
Now need the cups gs device.
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2002-08-15 14:10:59 EDT
Oops, I left a '/usr/local' path in pstoraster.  Need to change that on the 
next build. 
But also, I built a ghostscript with the 'cups' device, but still can't get it 
working.  Something else is wrong, since 'pstoraster' never even gets invoked 
as far as I can see. :-/
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2002-08-16 10:32:10 EDT
Fixed ghostscript package is 7.05-20. 
So now two CUPS problems remain: 
a) my mistake in pstoraster: change 'prefix=/usr/local' to 'prefix=/usr' in 
the next CUPS build 
b) even after this change the gimp-print drivers don't work from CUPS, and I 
don't know why.  They work fine from LPRng.
Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2002-08-19 08:28:29 EDT
Fixed package is 1.1.15-9.  The gimp-print-cups drivers work now; probably I 
did something wrong when testing before.

Things look good from this end.
