  Raster images printing as negatives when trying to print PDFs

Status in “cups” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When printing PDFs from Ubuntu 14.04 on a network printer, things
  mostly print OK but raster images are printed in negative.  Vector
  images appear unaffected, and the document displays on screen

  The source PDFs are generated with Latex or with Adobe products and
  seem OK when viewed on other platforms, and on screen rendering in
  Ubuntu using the image viewer works OK too.  However, the physical
  pages coming out of the printer (an HP laser in this case) are normal
  for text and vector stuff but the rasters show up as negative - white
  is black, etc.

  This bug did not occur previously with Ubuntu 12.04 and the same
  hardware, network connection, and file.
