unfortunately I cannot install a recent cups-filters
# zypper up cups-filters
Problem: cups-filters-1.20.2-81.1.x86_64 obsoletes cups-filters-ghostscript < 1.20.2 provided by cups-filters-ghostscript-1.8.2-62.11.x86_64
 Solution 1: Following actions will be done:
  remove lock to allow removal of cups-filters-ghostscript-1.8.2-62.11.x86_64
  remove lock to allow removal of cups-filters-foomatic-rip-1.8.2-62.11.x86_64
  remove lock to allow removal of cups-filters-cups-browsed-1.8.2-62.11.x86_64
 Solution 2: do not install cups-filters-1.20.2-81.1.x86_64

I need those cups-filters (gs, foomatic-rip) not only for this printer..
openSUSE Leap 42.2 by the way
