Yep, no soup. I think that is the default, and just tried it again and
doesn't work.

# rpm -qva|grep guten
gutenprint-cups-5.2.5-5.fc13.x86_64
gutenprint-5.2.5-5.fc13.x86_64

I've now tried pretty much all of them in various ways, and they all
print the same error message.

I've also tried the "overwrite" and "keep settings from previous PPD"
choices, and same result.

Thanks for any ideas.
Best regards,
