I had the patch running (manually) on Arch since a few year. But somehow, this stopped working at some point. I again get garbled text when selecting text from a cups-pdf generated pdf.

Also using your AUR directly does not help. What do I do?

yay -S cups-pdf-to-pdf-git

sudo systemctl restart cups

Go to localhost:631, remove the old cups-pdf printer, add the new one using one of CUPS-PDF with or without options, install it, select it as default printer

do echo 'mama' | lp as user, open the PDF in a reader, select the text, paste it somewhere: it is not mama, but unicode character replacements.

Any hint? Thanks in advance!
