Which package replaces cup-spdf

Asked by cmnorton on 2012-03-31

Periodically, I get a partial upgrade message from Update Manager. It asks if I want to remove obsolete packages, and I answer yes. Then I find that cups-pdf is gone. What is replacing cups-pdf? I depend on it or something like it.

Thanks.

I'm more interested in why it was de-installed.
