Version: 1.1.23 User: fredo


We have a CUPS (ver. 1.1.23) print server with a Brother (HL-1250) and Samsung (ML-1210) laser printers, and Epson (Stylus Color 880) inkjet printer.

We have a problem with the MacOS X clients and certain applications as Photoshop which cannot print, others as firefox can print. Have use also SAMBA for the Windows clients and the line "application/octet-stream" is uncommented.

I captured in the spool a document printed with photoshop CS (I compressed it for the post). The printed pages are filled with ASCII characters.

Can you tell me why the document is not printed correctly?

Please contact Apple for this issue.

Adobe applications produce PICT files with embedded PostScript when printing. When printing to a non-MacOS X server, the MacOS X client needs to convert this data to PostScript for printing.

This change to the IPP backend was introduced in MacOS X 10.3 (CUPS 1.1.19) and uses Apple's proprietary pictwpstops filter. There is nothing we can do to help you resolve this issue on our end...
