i am really n00b, any suggestions would be great. thanks
in the file find the area and change the $debug = 0; as suggested then inspect the log file in /tmp to get more clues. Take note of the WARNING and asap revert back to the original file.
# Set debug to 1 to enable the debug logfile for this filter; it will
# appear as defined by $logfile. It will contain status from this
# filter, plus the renderer's stderr output. You can also add a line
# "debug: 1" to your /etc/foomatic/filter.conf to get all your
# Foomatic filters into debug mode.
# WARNING: This logfile is a security hole; do not use in production.
my $debug = 0;
# This is the location of the debug logfile (and also the copy of the
# processed PostScript data) in case you have enabled debugging above.
# The logfile will get the extension ".log", the PostScript data ".ps".
my $logfile = "/tmp/foomatic-rip";
