I have been using a Raspberry PI for a printer server for about 2 years now. The PI has been hooked up to a Brothers HL-2240D laser printer. I had use CUPS and the hpijs drivers.
One day, the server stopped working and the files were corrupted. I had image backup the sdcard using AOMEI backupper, but surprisingly, the restore sdcard didn't boot, so I had to download Raspbian NOOB and recreate the server. This time around, I can't get printing to work. I install CUPS and HPIJS and then proceeded to add the printer, which worked fine until I print a test page. Now I get get a filter error. I looked in /var/logs/cups/error_log, but the message were not helpful even when I up the debug level to the max. All it said was that it can't get a page count when it's printing.
I had looked online and there were some messages talking about about hpijs not working any more. Is there an issue with the latest raspian and printing from CUPS?
