Help with cups?

I've finally reached a point where cups-2.1.2 is installed and appears to be functional. I'm able to use the web interface to set up my networked HP Deskjet 2545 printer.

However, something still isn't quite right.  :)

I've installed a number of related packages, including:

If I set up the printer with the hpijs ppd, and then print a text file, the job gets sent to the printer. But the output consists only of the


header (actually, the ? in the second line is upside-down, but I don't know how to type that!)

If I set up the printer with the hpcups version of the ppd, the same print request fails, and cups admin page says "filter failed".

I'm guessing that I need to change something somewhere, but I haven't a clue to what/where. :) Is there some additional package required?
