Firstly, does printing of other formats (eg. Postscript) work?  If
so, I guess it's just that particular magicfilter line.  If you
can't print anything, check your /proc/parport/0/hardware to make
sure you have one.

A friend of mine had this problem and I only solved it for her
today.  Basically we purged lprng and then reinstalled it, then
reran magicfilterconfig afterwards.  If you can't find other reasons
why it doesn't work, this is worth a try.
