IMPORTANT NOTE

FAULTY CUPS FILTER

It was discovered that a new CUPS filter that is included with many newer Linux distributions may cause undesirable output. Job options may be applied incorrectly when job orientation and page grouping are used. Please see the section below with instructions for a workaround.

A post with information on a fix will be available soon at: http://www.codehost.com/cups

Please be sure to be running the latest release version of your Linux distribution or contact your vendor for information on future updated CUPS releases.

Ubuntu 13.04: TEMPORARY SOLUTION FOR PS FILES ON FAULTY CUPS FILTER

The default CUPS filter configuration may cause problems with the handling of options for certain PostScript jobs. Until a fix for the CUPS filters is provided for the OS, this can be solved with the following workaround:

  1. Manually copy the provided `local.convs` file to the `/usr/share/cups/mime/` directory:
    # sudo cp /usr/local/brightq/local.convs /usr/share/cups/mime
  2. Restart the CUPS daemon to refresh its configuration:
    # sudo service cups restart
    The above commands assume BrightQ was installed under `/usr/local` by default.

This will restore some of the original PS workflow to alleviate these issues with BrightQ queues. Note that the problems will still affect non-PostScript files.

Ubuntu 13.10 (CUPS 1.6.2) and Fedora 19 (CUPS 1.6): Landscape and Group features utilizing PDF workflow are affected.
