Non Postscript Printer

Hi. I am trying to configure a Panasonic printer, KX-P1124. 
I have always used epson LQ850 compatibility mode. 
Oddly, I had this working one month ago, 
I could print from StarOffice or Mozilla. 
I can print text with 'lpr'. 
But the thing that has changed is that 
I can no longer get the correct printout 
from StarOffice or Mozilla: 
The printer starts printing out the postscript language. 

I tried removing and installing magicfilter, but still 
just got postscript language. 

I have removed magicfilter and installed ghostview, 
gv and gs (ghostscript). 
For testing, I created a postscript file, print1B.ps. 
According to the ghostscript documentation, 
I should be able to print using the command: 
gs -sDEVICE=epson print1B.ps, 
but what I actually got was: 

# gs -sDEVICE=epson print1B.ps

GNU Ghostscript 6.51: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1

What does 'Error: /invalidfileaccess in --.outputpage--' mean? 
I get this error both as user and as su. 

If i try: cat print1B.ps |gs -sDEVICE=lq850 >/dev/lp0 as su, 
I get a lot of text including much GS>GS>GS>GS> 
and GS(1)GS(1)GS(1)GS(1) ...

What is the simplest way to setup a non-postscript printer 
with Debian (woody)?
