Hello there,

I have a issue with cups.

My laptop (ThinkPad X280) run FreeBSD 12.1-RELEASE.
Cups version is 2.2.12.
The printer is a Lexmark MB2236.

I downloaded the PPD and install them with the provided shell script.

Cupsd is lanched, and I can create my printer with the web interface.

But I cannot print anything, even the test page. The result is "File not found".
Which file, I don't know.

I had to create manually /usr/lib/cups/filter.

Before, with 12.0-RELEASE-p10 it was running well. There was some files in
To make cups running I made a symlink between /usr/local/lib/cups and /usr/lib/

With 12.1-RELEASE, no more files or directory in /usr/local/lib (for cups).

Is somebody could help me?
I am lost with this problem.

Thanks is advance.
Jacques Foucry
