Unable to print from Okular to cups 2.0.2/cups-filters 1.0 on Slack-Current


This started with the switch to cups 2.0.2/cups-filters 1.0 in Slackware-Current. Printing from Okular gives the error "Filter failed" in cups. I can print the PDF from other programs.

System info:
Slackware-current with all updates
cups 2.0.2/cups-filters 1.0
hplip 3.15.2

Not sure if this is the same issue or how it translates to Slackware but on Debian adding the cups-bsd package gets okular printing pdf's.

This is not the case for Slack. All the cli tools from cups-bsd are already included in the Slack cups package.

It's not that Okular can't communicate with cups, it does send the document to be printed. However, cups is unable to understand the required filter of any document sent by Okular. I haven't dug into the issue because I have other options to print the document. But before I start picking things apart, I wanted to know if this is an isolated incident or a known Slack problem.

I'm having the same problem in Arch. Downgrading cups-filters fixed the issue.
