Comment 22 for bug 172264

Till,

Thanks again for your help. I tried all your recommendations and I feel like I'm getting closer, but now ALL print jobs fail (stopped), BUT they fail for the same reason whether or not they acroread or gedit. Here is what I did:

I downloaded:
ghostscript-8.60-1lsb3.1.i486.rpm
ghostscript-cups-8.60-1lsb3.1.i486.rpm
ghostscript-fonts-8.60-1lsb3.1.i486.rpm
ghostscript-x-8.60-1lsb3.1.i486.rpm

and converted them to .deb with alien.

sudo alien --scripts *.rpm

then ran the install

sudo dpkg -i *.deb

My automatic updates immediately complained that the database was corrupt and needed to be fixed with: "sudo apt-get install -f" which I did:

The following extra packages will be installed:
  gs
The following NEW packages will be installed:

OK. So. Now ALL print jobs are stopped (fail), with the following CUPS error:

I saw the .log file open error, so I thought I would try again to issue:
sudo aa-complain cupsys
Can't find cupsys in the system path list. If the name of the application is correct, please run 'which cupsys' as a user with the correct PATH environment set up in order to find the fully-qualified path.

Now I'm really in a pickle, as nothing prints....any thoughts? I'm going to reboot and see if that makes any difference.
