You need ghostscript. Get the Alladin version out of non-free as it
has the most up to date drivers. It will convert ps files to about
any printer language out there. There is even a driver for the hp
550(cdj550). When you installed the magicfilter package it should
have asked you if you wanted to install the gs package as well.
