    Default error stopped "/usr/lib/cups/filter/hpcups failed" when printing

    Error is seen under "Jobs" in CUPS when sending a print job from Okular. I don't know much about CUPS. Just started happening this morning and I can't print to either network printer. I have rebooted SUSE 11.4. Both printers will print a test page from CUPS.

    Seems to be ONLY the printing from Okular that is affected and I get the error. Could it be the .pdf file is bad? It is from the bank and I've printed them many times before (my bank statement). Thanks if you can suggest where I might poke?

    try printing from the adobe reader, maybe??
    or, i think LibreOffice can print a pdf, maybe GIMP also...

    Thanks. I got it printed with GIMP by doing a screen capture of Okular, both pages I needed so the panic is off. Yes, there are many alternate ways to do things in SUSE!

    welcome...am happy the panic is past!

    not just in openSUSE (just "SUSE" is a different animal), but in Linux
    in general..

    sorry, i don't really have any idea why you get the error you do with
    CUPS (i've never been very lucky with it)..

    sometimes so many different way are available it is dizzying....but,
    instead of confusion i call it FREEDOM (to use the way that works best
    for _you_!)

    This time I printed the pdf with GIMP. This is more trouble than if I was just able to print it from Okular but again this month, the pdf I get from the bank gives me the error in the post title. Any Okular experts out there? Thanks

    As said already, there are several other PDF viewers you can use.

    "There are sveral other PDF viewers you can use". I think that's not the good solution. I have the same problem. And many other users have. Only Okular refuses to print. (OpenSUSE 11.4/KDE 4.6.0). All other apps print fine. I just expect Okular being able to print. So how to solve this problem with Okular?
