    Hi all. @BrianZ, yes I have it installed but it was not working. I worked around cups and finally it's working. I am preparing all the steps to post it here how i manage to get cups working. The filter in cups was throwing an error and cups did not install all the necessary files. Jul 22 '20 at 10:56
