You need to figure out why pstoraster and rastertoprinter are failing.
The cups docs may have a listing of exit codes.  It may be simpler to
set 'LogLevel debug' in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf, restart cups, try again,
and sift through the extra information in the error log.


Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul.
Rather be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
