My cups-pdf pdf printer is not working.


I have tried all the usual stuff like:
apt-get cups-pdf and similar things.

Of course I use the proper way (like sudo, etc.)
As you must have guessed I am new to Linux(Ubuntu).
The point is I can't print PDF files. Have a look at the image:

I have also modified to the cups-pdf.conf file and have directed it to /home/{USER}/PDF
And yes the aforementioned folder (i.e. PDF) exists at its proper place.

So I think the main problem is "P2POutputStream" error which you can see in the image.

Please let me know what you think.

Thank You in advance.

Hi, cups-pdf is the right package, but you need to set up an entry in your /etc/cups/printers.conf file. Something like the following should work:
Code:
<Printer pdf>
Info PDF Printer
Location tornado:home/cups-pdf/
DeviceURI cups-pdf:/
State Idle
StateTime 1265778451
Type 4
Accepting Yes
Shared Yes
JobSheets none none
QuotaPeriod 0
PageLimit 0
KLimit 0
OpPolicy default
ErrorPolicy stop-printer
</Printer>
Also, I think the entry in you cups-pdf.conf file should look like:
Code:
Out ${HOME}/PDF
or perhaps
Code:
Out /home/${USER}/PDF
This second form makes an assumption about where the users home dir.

Cheers,

Evo2.
