"Missing driver" error when setting up IPP printer queue (missing pstopxl)
Last modified: 2013-07-23 23:26:52 EDT
Description of problem:
Setting up a new IPP printer queue results in an error message:
Printer 'io' requires the '/usr/lib/cups/filter/pstopxl' program but it is not currently installed. Please install it before using this printer.
AFAIK this filter has been renamed to "gstopxl" in the ghostscript package for quite some time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add new IPP printer via system-config-printers
I realise that the actual bug is probably further down in the stack (perhaps in CUPS, or even a missing pstoxpl->gstopxl symlink in ghostscript), feel free to reassign if this is the case.
Can you attach PPD file (named io.ppd I guess) from /etc/cups/ppd/ ?
/etc/cups/ppd/ is empty. Perhaps I should have mentioned that I configured the printer by specifying a URL.
Anyway, in the PPD file on the printserver (RHEL 5.9) I notice:
*cupsFilter: "application/vnd.cups-postscript 100 pstopxl"
*cupsFilter: "application/vnd.cups-pdf 0 pstopxl"
Ergo, PEBKAC :)
Ah... system-config-printer should only check local PPDs, but it seems like it checked a remote one here.
Should be fixed upstream in commit aad2dbc.
