Bug#849951: cups-filters: Printing fails sometimes with ERROR: typecheck OFFENDING COMMAND: know
Printing intermittenly fails with the following postscript error: "ERROR: typecheck OFFENDING COMMAND: know"
I've found the following Ubuntu bug report which also contains a temporary fix for this issue:
The issue is fixed by giving the following command as root: lpadmin -p hp_m506x -o pdftops-renderer-default=pdftops
In Wheezy (oldstable) this issue did not exist, and also in an older Ubuntu version. I figured this bug made it back again into this package.
