Printer support

I just checked that bunsen-meta-printer-support depends on cups, cups-pdf, system-config-printer, printer-driver-hpijs and hplip.

Now, cups-pdf, printer-driver-hpijs and hplip all pull in cups, so I am wondering if it is really necessary to make it depending on cups, as well.

Further, cups-pdf is a transitional dummy package only to install printer-driver-cups-pdf. Why not then make the dependency on the real package instead of the dummy one? As far as I see, up to wheezy it was called cups-pdf, and from jessie it is called printer-driver-cups-pdf and cups-pdf is only a dummy package for it.

Not really, but since cups is the key package it does no harm to explicitly call for it.

Thank you for catching this.
"cups-pdf" was inherited from CrunchBang, and we should update the name, as you suggest.

Re: Printer support

Dependency changed to printer-driver-cups-pdf in bunsen-welcome 8.5-1.
