cups problem

If you receive

/usr/libexec/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed

you could try

emerge --unmerge ghostscript-gpl cups foomatic-db \
foomatic-db-engine foomatic-db-ppds foomatic-filters \
foomatic-filters-ppds foomatic-gui

emerge -va cups

Cups seems to use it’s own filters (less but one for different printers) then. Works perfectly now.

I got these options activated

X dbus jpeg nls pam php png samba

but not especially for cups (-> /etc/make.conf)
