Er, well, actually I installed it recently and jusr red the main doc on
how to install it... it's all straightforward, it autodetects the
printer and can be done via a www config tool, all very friendly - and
CLI is also available, of course.
I think you do not need magicfilter, CUPS replaces BSD lp* with new
versions that use the included HP or Epson drivers; as for postscript, I
really don't know... all I know is that after installing and adding my
printer I was able to print correctly images (never could do it before),
text, Postscript, HTML, etc, all with the default settings the tools
have /(i.e. lpr - .... ).
