The error you reported in prior email thread is a typical ghostscript
error that results if you try to display a nonpostscript file. It
seems that the cups filter is not converting your text file to
postscript before passing it to gs-esp. That sound like a mime
definition problem, but we already checked the cups mime definitions. 

Just on a lark, do you get the same error with "lpr printtest" and
"lpr -p printtest"?
