FS#1450 - [system-config-printer] Impossible to print some pdfs (missing "wrapper")

Hello,

I’m unable to print some pdfs on my Hyperbola 3.0 system.
Some background :

cups is installed, service enabled and working
system-config-printer is installed and my printer has been correctly added.

I can print most pdfs and text files but recently with a pdf, it fails to print it.* And system-config-printer returned the following error (see capture) :

Printer "EPSON XP-620-Series" requires the '/usr/lib/cups/filters/epson-escpr-wrapper' but it is not currently installed.

Currently, “epson-escpr-wrapper” is installed but it is in :

/usr/libexec/cups/filters/epson-escpr-wrapper

Looking at source code of system-config-printer, it expects that wrapper to be installed in “/usr/lib/” so I tried to symlink that “epson-escpr-wrapper” to “/usr/lib/cups/filters” but it doesn’t work..

*With a Debian system and the exact same configuration, the “problematic” pdf prints just fine so it is not an issue with the pdf.
