hplip or dependencies/dependents should explicitly depend on foomatic-filters

Bug Description

Binary package hint: hplip-ppds

Installing hplip-ppds and adding printer of type LaserJet 2300 series to cups causes printer stop in absence of "/usr/bin/foomatic-rip". However neither hplip-ppds nor dependencies explicitly depend on foomatic-filters (which contains this file) or dependents; this is surely wrong.

hplip-ppds has been replaced by hpijs-ppds in Hardy and now depends on foomatic-filters.

I am hitting this same problem with the package hpijs.

I agree with the analysis, it needs to explicitly depend on foomatic-filters.

Debdiff attached.

Thank you for the report, now the hpijs package also needs the dependency on foomatic-filters, as this package now contains a PPD generator (the .drv file) which produces PPDs which need foomatic-rip.
