Bug#343192: cupsys: infrastructure for dvi autodetection and printing missing.

Wilfried Goesgens
Package: cupsys
Version: 1.1.23-12
Severity: serious
Tags: patch
Justification: dvis can't be printed automagically like that.

with some magic cups can be convinced to directly print dvi files.
i achieved this with:
* adding to mime.convs:
application/x-dvi application/postscript  33  dvips
* adding to mime.types
application/x-dvi       dvi contains(0,2048,"TeX output")

creating a tiny shellscript in /usr/lib/cups/filters/dvips
#!/bin/bash

# See if we have a filename on the command-line...
if test -z "$6"; then
TMPFILE=`mktemp`
cat >$TMPFILE
        ifile="$TMPFILE"
        else
                ifile="$6"
                fi
                # try to figure out the dpi's...
                DPI=`cat $PPD |grep -i "resolution " |tail -n 1|sed -e
                "s;\*Resolution.*dpi/;;" -e "s; DPI.*;;"`

                ARGS="-D $DPI "
                if test "$DPI" -gt "400"; then

There isn't proper way to convert ANY dvi and adding default filter
makes bigger dependency.
Since cups 1.1.23-8, cupsys includes dvipipetops filter example in
/usr/share/doc/cupsys/examples/filters. Please try this.

Thanks,
