This problem has been resolved by Helge at cups.org. The solution is at
and the whole thread ("PostScript problem with Xerox Phaser 6280DN") is at
It turns out that acroread and openoffice, given Xerox's Linux driver for the
Phaser 6280DN, generate non-conforming PostScript that gives errors at the
printer or when viewed by gv. Helge's solution involves adding just one line
to the PPD file (/etc/cups/ppd/Phaser_6280DN.ppd in my case) and a file named
oopstops. In Etch, oopstops is already present as
/usr/lib/cups/filter/oopstops (part of the cups 1.3.8-1+lenny7 package).
Just adding the one line to the PPD file (and restarting cups) succeeded in
my case. Files printed from acroread now print correctly.
