  I suspect that the printer does not accept postscript.  You will
probably need a filter to convert postscript into whatever the printer
itself likes... this can be added to your CUPS printing configuration so
it is automatically done for all print jobs.
  Try looking around for magicfilter, or ghostscript... those are likely
to be part of the solution.

  For windows someone installed a print filter (aka: print driver) to be
able to use the printer in the first place.  That is why things work
