Have a look at /var/log/cups/error_log. If it doesn't give enough information, 
try setting the LogLevel to "debug", restart cupsd and try again. On this 
level of logging, the error messages alone had enough hints going with them 
to solve the problem.

I had a similar problem which resulted from a missing gs-esp package, which is 
necessary for printers without their own rasterizer. If an error message 
tells you this is missing, install the package and restart cupsd again. 
That's what worked for me.
