This is not a direct solution, but I have this printer as well and it
works perfectly, printing directly from lpr, from apps, and from dvips.
I don't use KDE or Gnome; I set up the printer with magicfilter (having
failed to get CUPS to work).
My printcap file:
# @(#)etc.printcap 5.2 (Berkeley) 5/5/88
# This file was generated by /usr/sbin/magicfilterconfig.
