I just set up apsfilter last night, and I had the same problem--the test
page printed fine, and I could cat stuff directly, but everything else
failed.  It turns out that the permissions of the printer device in /dev
were set wrong-- read-only, no write for the lp group, which obviously
doesn't make much sense for a printer using lprng for spooling.
