After doing step 2 and steps 10-15, the test page does not print. A window pops up which says "Test page submitted as job 170." I click OK and nothing happens.
So I try printing a page from firefox, and a window pops up which says "Progress: preparing..." then closes after a while. In the document print status window, the status of the job is held. I select the job and releases it. The status changes temporarily to processing and then reverts to held. I do this 4 times and after the 4th attempt, it dissapears.
I go to the PDF directory and no new job is there. The last job was created October 6 (prior to my upgrade to Gutsy).
The cups-pdf_log looks like this (only larger):
Fri Nov 30 11:43:58 2007 [ERROR] failed to open spoolfile (/var/spool/cups-pdf/SPOOL/cups2pdf-7127)

This problem is still not solved, does anyone have any further ideas?
I installed cups-pdf as per the instructions from this forum.The test page is printed in the roots folder '/root/PDF' instead of my home folder.Any solution for this problem?
The test page is owned by root and so it was printed in the roots home folder.Its works perfectly for files owned by me.Thankyou
I've struggled with this and have been unable to get it working properly in 7.10. I have such a beast working fine in Edgy. So somethings broke and I have yet to figure out what.
What I've resorted to doing is to print to file, so that I get a PS file in my ~/PDF directory. Then I run a Nautilus script I wrote on the PS file and convert it to a PDF. A bit of a hassle.
So when people say it works for them, I'd sure like to know the secret. :-)
ahh.. blessings to you people :)
now i have pdfs from my CAD dwgs, up to A3 size; exactly what i need
