I am running Slackware-current on two desktop systems. One system has an HP DeskJet 720C and the other an HP DeskJet 822C. Here is my issue....
I went through the documents on linuxprinting.org to install the printers. On system #1 (with the 720C) I am using the pnmppa driver and it is working great. On system #2 I am using the hpijs driving and it isn't working at all. The issue seams to be ghost script. When I run the foomatic-gswrapper program on System #1 it brings up the usual gs window and sits there. When I run the program on System #2 it gives the following error:
foomatic-gswrapper: gs '' 3>&1 1>&2

Basically, I am thinking that gs is the reason for my printer not working as it worked just fine on System #2 under slackware 8.1. This is highly ironic considering this is the first time I have gotten the 720C (on System #1) to work at all, and now the 822C which has worked for years has stopped. Both systems are not using any compiled by hang packages (at least as far as printing goes). I used the standard slackware-current package for apsfilter, gs, hpijs, ect.
Anyone have any ideas how I can fix this problem? Or what exactly gs means by .libfile. If you are not familar with foomatic-gswrapper they just read this as if I am using gs to filter printing with the command line gs '' 3>&1 1>&2.
