Okay, I just tried it. I installed:


onto a Sid system (dpkg warned that it was downgrading all three from
9.22~dfsg-3), and printed a test page from the CUPS admin web
interface. The page looks good, although the printer printed three
copies - not sure if that's something I asked for by mistake, some
misconfiguration on my part (although I've printed many test pages
before without this problem), or an actual problem with gs.

This is a Brother HL2280DW, printing via local network, using Brother's
proprietary drivers.
