- I've fixed the conflict between cups and cups-filters by stopping the
- latter to install the conflicting files.

The fix I have in my tree (still testing) was to have
cups-filters install the conflicting files, rather than cups,
since cups can't do anything with the files with the default
filter set.

The conflicting files are:

- get an answer yet.

I'm still trying to figure out why other cups systems on my
network doesn't see the printers "exported" by the master cups
print server.
