This seems to prevent some files from being printed.

Package: cups
Version: 1.5.0-5

E [27/Aug/2011:23:22:22 +0200] Filter "pstoraster" not found.

Commenting the relevant lines in /etc/cups/mime.convs prevent those message but
printer still not printing.

According to packages.debian.org:
* hpgltops was present in cups 1.4.4-7 (squeeze) but is not part of 1.5.0-5
(sid)
* pstoraster was present in ghostscript-cups 8.71~dfsg2-9 (squeeze) but is not

Subject: Absence of pstoraster and hpgltops
Date: Sat, 10 Sep 2011 14:50:55 +0100
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
I was able to work around this problem by:

1) making a symlink /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstoraster to
/usr/lib/cups/filter/gstoraster.

2) Copying hpgltops from another distro (I have Crux which uses an earlier
version of cups).

No.2 is frankly a bodge but no.1 makes sense because gstoraster provides the
same service as pstoraster.

Hi,

Two months of this important severity bug and no comment from package
maintainers as to what happened and when it might be fixed, in the
meantime HP backend users can't print.  Please advise.

Subject: it seems that cups has removed some filters from their project
Date: Fri, 25 Nov 2011 13:22:39 +0100
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Hello,

I had the same issue that you have reported. I have been able to print
thanks to your suggestion about the symlink for pstoraster and the copy of
the hpgltops filter (taken from ubuntu 10.10 cups deb package).

I've been digging a little inside the cups project, i.e., forums, bugs,
logs, changes, and svn (cups-1.6svn-r10126-source) and it seems that newer
versions do not have those filters anymore. The work has been transfered
from cups (I think) to the openprinting project, but this team has not put
the filters into their code yet.

I do not know if the HP filter (hpgltops) would go to the hplip project,
though.

The functions provided by pstoraster are now in gstoraster, which is
part of the ghostscript-cups package.

  http://www.linuxfoundation.org/collaborate/workgroups/openprinting/pdfasstandardprintjobformat

CUPS 1.5 removed hpgltops.

  http://www.cups.org/documentation.php/doc-1.5/relnotes.html

  http://www.cups.org/str.php?L3322

It would be expected that printing on an up-to-date testing/stable
machine would not be impaired. Hence closing this bug report.

Regards,

Brian.
