extra/poppler 0.20.0-1 [installed]
extra/cups 1.5.3-4 [installed]
extra/cups-filters 1.0.18-2 [installed]
aur/cups-xerox 2008.01.21-1 [installed]
for some days I have some bad problems with my two printers (a dell and a xerox workcentre)
If I try to print a testpage via cups it ends with:
"/usr/lib/cups/filter/pdftops failed" on both printers.
Same with printing via libre office, but the dell gives me a: "/usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed"
I already tried downgrading cups, cups-filters and poppler, no soloution, so any suggestions for me?

Have a look at https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/30021
You may need to reinstall your printers and/or the drivers you use for them.
But there again it's only HP devices I am using at present ...
Thanks, already saw this bug report and tried reinstalling and new configuring.
Already downgraded as well -> no soloution
Doesn't that bug concern an earlier version of cups with everything supposedly fixed in 1.5.3-3? The latest version is 1.5.3-4 and that seems to be introducing a lot of problems. (And I have deleted all my printers and reinstalled some of them - it got depressing, though, so I've not kept going.)
My hp p1005 just stopped working.I tried everything and got nothing.I was blacklisting hplip,as once hplip-plugin was missing from aur,and had small problems.
Now it looks like brick.
Could hplip-plugin be included in repos instead aur?
Edit : works again with new packages.

Installed extra/ghostscript now printing works again, never had these packages.
But ok, perhaps cups should depend on ghostscript.
I'm glad I ran across this post. I had the same problem, new install of ArchBang and I couldn't get any printers to work. I would get the filter failed error every time. I installed ghostscript, restarted cups, and bam, printing away. Thanks.
