I have installed a HP Lj P1102w printer on OpenSUSE 12.3 as a local printer. After installing hplip and downloading the necessary proprietary plugin the printer works fine.
After this the printer was installed on a computer with OpenSUSE 12.2. Also works.
Then I left the printer on this later box and tried to use it from the OpenSUSE
12.3 one. For this I have only changed the printer from local USB to use CUPS server on the OpenSUSE 12.2 one with ipp. Nothing else was changed
And here the printing fails. The printer's CUPS page can be reached, so the problem is probably not because of access rights.
The error message is: /usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed
At the end of CUPS error_log the following is logged:

What should I change, install, reinstall, etc. to have the printer work the desired way? Previously another HP printer (LJ 1150) was connected to the server and it worked flawlessly in the same setup.
