Description Bill Anderson 1999-11-27 06:17:17 UTC
Upon upgrading to ghostcript-5.50, printtool fails when attempting to
select a print filter I get a non-passable error.
Stack Trace:

can't read "printerdb_descr2entry()": no such element in array
    while executing
"set pentry $printerdb_descr2entry([$printer get $index])"
    (procedure "LOCAL_select_printer_type" line 22)
    invoked from within
"LOCAL_select_printer_type $curent .sf.f1.list .sf.f2.text .sf.f3.list
.sf.f6.list .sf.f4.list $CBasc2ps"
    (procedure "LOCAL_select_filter" line 441)
    invoked from within
"LOCAL_select_filter .e.v10"
    invoked from within
".e.autofilter invoke"
    ("uplevel" body line 1)
    invoked from within
"uplevel #0 [list $w invoke]"
    (procedure "tkButtonUp" line 8)
    invoked from within
"tkButtonUp .e.autofilter"
    (command bound to event)

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 1999-11-28 15:24:59 UTC
You almost certainly messed up your ghostscript 5.50 compilation (i.e. installed
its files to the wrong places).
Try the semi-official ghostscript 5.50 RPM for Red Hat Linux at <a
