"/usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed"

I tried the other device and still no dice. I ls -l foomatic-rip and it's got 777 permissions.

Any ideas?
The script I posted was an excerpt from rc.M it should already have been there, and you probably should not have added it if it already is there.

Anyway, I do remember I had a similar problem with foomatic-rip, I believe what I had to do was install foomatic-filters from here:

Aye, made a copy of the old rc.M so I just mv it back hehe.

Guys I FINALLY GOT IT WORK!!

I started installing the foomatic filters. When I configured it I saw

pdf.c:14:30: error: ghostscript/iapi.h: No such file or directory
pdf.c:15:33: error: ghostscript/ierrors.h: No such file or directory

So I installed the ghostscript-8.64-i486-1.tgz package. Then I reconfigured the foomatic filters, no errors, make, make install. Then I shutdown hplip and cups and restarted hplip and cups in that order. Opened the browser, added the printer, and clicked Print Test Page.

Lo and behold, I heard the printer perform. W00t. Thanks guys.

yeah, good to see it worked out, indeed it could have been a dependency issue with ghostscript, but it's weird because I had the same problem a while ago, the only thing that worked was to (re)install the foomatic filters.

@trist007:
----------
I have the same problem here under Solaris 10 where Ghostscript is
installed as a 'package'. I think I have to do the installation from
Ghostscript's source in order to get the 'iapi.h' header.
But how do I have to include this header into the 'foomatic-filters'
configuration process?
THX, Rainer
