    Not able to print: /usr/libexec/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed
    Hi All,

    I recently installed an old HP CP1215 printer on a Windows PC and set it up to network share. The printer itself is not a network printer so i am trying to use the Windows PC as a print server and network print through my Macbook Pro. I have OSX Lion and I followed the instructions here: Ryan's Blog Getting an HP Color LaserJet CP1215 working on a Mac

    I was able to install and find the HP CP1215 laser printer. The only problem is whenever I try to print anything I receive an error:
    /usr/libexec/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed

    When I go here
    this is what I see:

    Print Error Log -

    Does anyone know what is going on? I'm trying to get this thing going but getting pretty frustrated. :p
    Appreciate all the help I can get. Thanks!
