Description Alex Yacoub 2002-08-24 14:06:42 EDT
Description of Problem:

cups will not print on my machine because it tries to filter files through
/usr/local/bin/gs instead of /usr/bin/gs.

The problem is in /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstoraster:
# Installation directories...
# Now run Ghostscript...
$bindir/gs $gsopts -sOUTPUTFILE="%stdout" $profile $ifile

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm using limbo2, but I upgraded the ghostscript and cups packages to the
packages in null.

How to debug:
Set LogLevel in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf to debug.  Try to print.  Grep the
/var/log/cups/error_log file for gs.

D [24/Aug/2002:13:51:58 -0400] /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstoraster: line 55:
/usr/local/bin/gs: No such file or directory

Reproducible always, for me.

Additional Information:
Workaround: make a symlink from /usr/local/bin/gs to /usr/bin/gs, or change
