    Cups printing

    For users who have Gentoo installed and are using cups for printing, if attempting to print gives this error (from /var/log/cup/error_log):

    Unable to convert file 0 to printable format for job 3!
    This means you don't have the necessary filters installed to convert the files. The problem was that esp-ghostscript and ghostscript were separate ebuilds. Since cups require the esp-ghostscripts filters, it could not use these unless you had it installed.

    Updating ghostscripts (it is now under one ebuild), should fix this issue.

    *  app-text/ghostscript
          Latest version Available: 7.05.3-r1
          Latest version Installed: 7.05.3-r1
          Description: ESP Ghostscript -- an enhanced version of GNU Ghostscript
          with better printer support

    Sounds like they need to update the dependancies on the cups ebuild.

    Yeah, they took care of that by getting rid of eps-ghostscripts and just using ghostscripts.
