I installed CUPS and added my printer but if I print anything I see always "filter failed" error. Could you please check what is wrong?

had a similar problem today; last time working printer refused to print, status "Filter failed".

Got it working again by downgrading Ghostscript to the version before:

$ apt-cache policy ghostscript
ghostscript:
  Installed: 9.26a~dfsg-0+deb9u1
  Candidate: 9.27~dfsg-1
  Version table:
     9.27~dfsg-1 500
        500 http://ftp.debian.org/debian testing/main amd64 Packages
 *** 9.26a~dfsg-0+deb9u1 500
        500 http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian stable/main amd64 Packages

Now i'm holding that version and watch for their next changelog.
