Ghostscript 8.00 does not create CUPS pstoraster subsystem
|Reported by:||Owned by:|
CUPS requires a pstoraster subsystem consisting of scripts to drive Ghostscript to create CUPS format raster files. The configuration script pstoraster.convs needs to be placed in /etc/cups. None of these are installed by the current BLFS Ghostscript 8.00 installation. The ESP Ghostscript 7.05 patches do not work with Ghostscript 8.00. Hence the BLFS Printing system is broken. The solution is to change to ESP Ghostscript 7.05-5.
