This sounds like you added a new printer, but you didn't change or add new
configurations for this printer.

I see you are using magicfilter. It looks like the filter is for
"laserjet". Is your EPSON EPL-5800L compatible with the "laserjet"?
I don't use an Epson and I don't use magicfilter. But I'd guess that
magicfilter does have some support for Epson's. Read the magicfilter
documentation or visit the magicfilter webpage (if one exists).
