Thanks Jan, looks like my previous message crossed yours! If it didn't
make it yet, I said there that I eventually found a solution by
installing package splix. It actually has a driver for this particular
model. I'm still baffled though because the printer printed fine from
other computers in the network except localhost. But it doesn't matter
anymore in my case because package splix made it print fine both from
localhost and elsewhere in the network.
