Taking this statement, and the previous one, it is evident you are
basing an argument on the behaviour of a filtering method in CUPS which
has not existed in Debian (and Redhat and Suse) for at least three
years. We have different understandings, which make it impossible to
compare two different conclusions in a meaningful way. Basically, a
conclusion derived from a view of reality which is wrong is without any
. . . but this is not going to help the OP to solve his problem.
He can make his own mind up on that. I'd like think there is enough in
this thread to get him started.
