PictWPSDoc print error 9783

  1. I've started getting this error on four of the machines in my production

    can't create PictWPSDoc from private/var/spool/cups/d00625-001'.ERROR
    during execution of pictwpstops. Error number -9783

    Two machines are Windtunnel G4s and two are G5 1.6s The G4s are on 10.2.8
    and G5s are 10.3.6. They connect to a Xerox EX 12 RIP on a Doc 12 printer
    via IP Printing. (appletalk and Rondezvous are toast, too) but they'll all
    print fine from Classic.

    I've read about this problem and that there is a script from allosx.com, but
    that site is dead. I'm trying to avoid completely rebuilding the machines,
    but it looks bad. Here's what I've done, thus far...

    Verified and repaired permissions
    Ran fsck -f and fsck -fy in single user mode
    Ran Print Center Repair and Printer Setup Repair
    Reinstalled (in place) OS 10.3 on one G5
    Upgraded one G4 to 10.3.6
    Reinstalled the printer with new PPD from Xerox
    Upgraded the RIP syestem.

    Now, I've got 32 other machines that are unaffected and I'm hoping it's not
    something viral.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Much thanks,

    I've started getting this error on four of the machines in my
    I have looked all over the net for the answer to this. Everyone
    points to a script on a web site that doesn't exist any more,
    allosx.com, which doesn't help anyone. If anyone finds the solution
    to this irritating problem (it's happening with my brand new Mac
    Mini that I just set up), write!
