I can’t print anymore from my Librem15rev2 with PureOS. In the
/var/log/cups/error_log I find the message
D [08/May/2019:09:45:26 +0200] [Job 488] GPL Ghostscript 9.27: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1
D [08/May/2019:09:45:26 +0200] [Job 488] Process is dying with "Unable to determine number of pages, page count: -1
Apparently this is due to a bug in ghostscript and/or cups-filters. A newer version of the packages apparently fixes this:
Another option would be to downgrade to ghostscript 9.26, but this carried a lot of dependencies, so I decided that this would be too complicated.
Is there an estimate how long it will take until the upgraded packages make it into the PureOS distribution?
Here is further information about my system and the two packages:
