Its rather hard to define where the problem might be Trey, when you
don't give us the version of cups in use, and the ppd file in use,
nor a printer model number.
But I'd suggest that you goto the web page localhost:631 with your
favorite browser and reconfigure it there to match up the driver and
the printers model number. Just s SWAG of course, but it sounds like
you are using the wrong driver ppd.
