I won't tell you to change to CUPS, but I will mention that I have an OS
X box which very happily prints to a printer connected to a Debian box
running CUPS. It required almost no setup on the OS X side (I set CUPS to
poll the right host), and only slightly more on the Debian side (setting
appropriate permissions for printers).
Good luck finding a solution that does not involve CUPS on Debian.
