Printing with a hp printer is not possible due to missing /usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip-hplip.

Additional info:
file is not missing due to hplip error but due to packaging error

Steps to reproduce:
Just install it and try to print.

Steps to fix:
add a line to the PKGBUILD packaging like
install $srcdir/hplip-3.12.6/prnt/hpijs/foomatic-rip-hplip /usr/lib/cups/filter/
didn't take a closer look at it but should fix it
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  foomatic-rip-hplip has been removed for good reason. fix your driver pkg/ppd file like we do in the hplip pkg.

I meant
install $srcdir/hplip-3.12.6/prnt/hpijs/foomatic-rip-hplip $pkgdir/usr/lib/cups/filter/
I think that doesn't fix the complete problem cause I get some tex/postfix like shit doesn't matter what I try to print.
I would really like the package to be tested before it gets updated.Hope that all this gets fixed real soon (tm).
Kind regards,
Thomas Schneider
