Bug#907900: hplip: Printing is not possible b/c of missing foomatic-rip-hplip filter
thanks for your quick reply, following are the results:
$> grep -i cupsfilter /etc/cups/ppd/HP_DeskJet_3630_series.ppd
*cupsFilter: "application/vnd.cups-postscript 100 foomatic-rip-hplip"
*cupsFilter: "application/vnd.cups-pdf 0 foomatic-rip-hplip"
$> ls -l /usr/lib/cups/foomatic-rip
ls: cannot access '/usr/lib/cups/foomatic-rip': No such file or directory
As it seems (searching for it with apt-file), this file is part of the 'foomatic-filters' package, which is not installed on my system: this package cannot be installed as it conflicts with package 'cups-filters'...
I did not install anything else, so nothing from the upstream site, for example.
