Printing fails after first page due to gs segfault

Postby mfs on Thu Nov 24, 2011 4:13 am

Hi,

I've been using LMDE for quite a while now and never had problems with my printer (Kyocera FS 1020D connected to a FritzBox printing server).
But for some weeks now, it's been driving me crazy. When I try to print a PDF the first page (means front and back in duplex mode) is printed, but then the printer tells me that it encountered a "printing error". But in the CUPS error_log (attached) I cannot see anything looking dangerous. However, in the syslog, there is a line reading

Code: Select all
kernel: [ 6793.329576] gs[13646]: segfault at 7fff00000058 ip 00007fc7a9fbb841 sp 00007fffd817c310 error 4 in libgs.so.9.04[7fc7a9e48000+52d000]


I tried the CUPS and gs versions from incoming, debian testing, stable and unstable, but essentially nothing changes - only sometimes the gs segfault in the syslog vanishes, but nevertheless printing fails.

Has anybody an idea what the problem could be?

Thank you for your help,
mfs.

EDIT: These are the versions of CUPS and ghostscript I'm currently using:

EDIT2: I investigated the problem a bit further.The gs segfault showing up in syslog seems to be the cause of the printing problem. When I tail -f syslog and CUPS error_log during printing I see that everything works well until the gs segfault occurs. Then printing stops with the "printer error" (in case I use one of the Foomatic PPDs) or it prints a page that is completely black (in case I use the CUPS+Gutenprint PPD).

I'm running into the same thing. Has anyone had luck fixing this?
