User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.2.15)
Gecko/20110303 Ubuntu/10.10 (maverick) Firefox/3.6.15

when I try to print a tiff file from any hp printer, the print out has a black
band printed and data is also corrupted.

Culprit:imagetoraster filter does not convert tiff file to cups raster
properly.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install HPLIP (HP Linux Imaging and printing ) latest version from hp
website.
2.Try to print a tiff file.
3.See the printed output. Printed paper will have on black colored band in the
middle page and top half of the data is printed in bottom half of the page and
vice versa.
Actual Results:
Printed paper will have on black colored band in the middle page and top half
of the data is printed in bottom half of the page and vice versa.

Expected Results:
Tiff image should get printed properly.i.e imagetoraster filter should do its
job properly.

Other distros like Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora etc. are not using this filter
anymore for converting tiff file into cupsraster.

Adding following lines in /usr/share/cups/mime/moime.types fixes the issue.
image/tiff application/vnd.cups-postscript 0 imagetops
application/vnd.cups-postscript application/vnd.cups-raster 0 pstoraster

So there are two ways of fixing the issue.

1) Fix imagetoraster filter.
2) change the filter sequence in mime.type to give preference to imagetops ->
pstoraster filters.

Please do the needful.
