This ebuild causes ghostscript to be installed with a search path of
instead of /usr/share/ghostscript/7.07/lib.
As a result, gs cannot find gs_init.ps, causing gs to abort upon every file I've tried to print.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Emerge cups and ghostscript. Add printers to cups
2. Set the cups log level to debug is cupsd.conf
3. Print a test page
4. Read the error log.
"ESP Ghostscript 7.07.1: Cannot find initialization file gs_init.ps"
is in error log.
I'm expecting hundreds of pages of important documents to print.
As a temporary fix, one can just run the following hack:
> mkdir -p var/tmp/portage/ghostscript-7.07.1-r7/image//usr/share/ghostscript/7.07
> ln -s /usr/share/ghostscript/7.07/lib /var/tmp/portage/ghostscript-7.07.1-r7/image//usr/share/ghostscript/7.07/lib
as long as you don't routinely delete /var/tmp/portage.
I'm hit by this bug, too...
please remerge ghostscript, that should fix the searchpath
Yup, problem solved :-)
