No Printing in VL5.9 Light
« on: November 16, 2008, 03:16:11 pm »

PROBLEM:
Cups seems to configure printer, but when printing test page it gives "/usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed" message and stops the job.

CAUSE:
There is no ghostscript package installed in VL5.9 Light.(Well, maybe there is, but certainly not on my box)

ANSWER:
Install ghostscript package via gslapt/slapt-get.
