Description John Levine 2012-07-04 16:50:05 UTC
When CUPS prints a PDF file on a Postscript printer, it calls pdftops which can be configured at build time to come from Ghostscript or xpdf. (xpdf's version is much faster.)

xpdf recently moved its pdftops to avoid file collisions with another port, which means that the cups shim that calls it now fails.


Change line 166 of the port Maksfile to this, to find pdftops in its new location:

CONFIGURE_ARGS+=	--enable-pdftops --with-pdftops=${LOCALBASE}/libexec/xpdf/pdftops
How-To-Repeat: build cups-base with "build pdftops with XPDF", then try to print a PDF file on a postscript printer. It'll fail with "/usr/local/libexec/cups/filter/pdftops failed"
