foomatic-db-gutenprint NEEDs ijsgutenprint

Bug Description

To fix bug 99372 Jonathan Riddell has decided on using foomatic-db-gutenprint to provide the Gutenprint PPDs as the KDE Printing Manager cannot cope with the on-the-fly PPD generator of cupsys-driver-gutenprint. To save space in Kubuntu he has released the "Depends" on ijsgutenprint.

foomatic-db-gutenprint contains Foomatic XML data to generate PPD files for the IJS driver of Gutenprint, ijsgutenprint. These PPDs are not able to use the cupsys-driver-gutenprint driver. Not having ijsgutenprint installed makes the PPDs generated from the data in foomatic-db-gutenprint non-functional. So the "Depends" on ijsgutenprint cannot be removed to save space on Kubuntu. The correct solution is to take cupsys-driver-gutenprint out of the Kubuntu seed and add ijsgutenprint instead.

  * debian/control, debian/ Re-introduced foomatic-db-gutenprint's
    dependency on ijsgutenprint, foomatic-db-gutenprint NEEDs ijsgutenprint
    (LP: #149899).
    Added also dependencies on foomatic-db-engine (needed to generate the PPDs)
    and foomatic-filter (needed to print with the PPDs).
    Also updated Ghostscript dependency in ijsgutenprint to the current
  * debian/rules: Do not include obsolete link /usr/share/cups/model/gutenprint
    which is deleted by the post-install script anyway (LP: #149729).
