Cups, foomatic-rip problem

I have a problem using foomatic with cups.

Cups works fine using a gimp-print driver but not with any of the foomatic ppds.

I have the symbolic link from /usr/bin/foomatic-rip to /usr/cups/lib/filter/foomatic-rip.

The relevant bit of the cups error log is:

Any help really appreciated,
