bug#33105: cups Can't create temporary file or stopped "Filter failed"

Hello Guix,

I've spotted a bug in CUPS service “Can't create temporary file”.  If I
gave ‘765’ permissions to ‘/var/spool/cups/tmp/’ directory then an error
is “stopped "Filter failed"”.  ‘777’ for /var/spool/cups/tmp/ is
required to print a test page via CUPS WEB interface.

I read gnu/services/cups.scm and found that the /var/spool/cups/
directory should be owned by ‘lp’ user:
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(define %cups-activation
  ;; Activation gexp.
  (with-imported-modules '((guix build utils))
        (use-modules (guix build utils))
        (define (mkdir-p/perms directory owner perms)
          (mkdir-p directory)
          (chown "/var/run/cups" (passwd:uid owner) (passwd:gid owner))
          ;; ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
          (chmod directory perms))
        ;; …
        (let ((user (getpwnam "lp")))
          ;; …
          (mkdir-p/perms "/var/spool/cups/tmp" user #o755) ; <----------
          ;; …
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Maybe we should make /var/spool/cups/tmp directory owned by ‘lp’ user,
too?  WDYT?

Test page was printed successfully with:
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ sudo ls -ld /var/spool/cups/tmp
drwxr-xr-x 2 lp lp 4096 Oct 20 21:20 /var/spool/cups/tmp
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

From cups-files.conf(5) man page:

TempDir directory
     Specifies the  directory  where  short-term  temporary  files  are
     stored.  The default is "/var/spool/cups/tmp".

User username
     Specifies  the  user name or ID that is used when running external
     programs.  The default is "lp".
