[cups.general] Hint: Do you have the raw file printing rules enabled

In /etc/cups/mime.convs and /etc/cups/mime.types are rules for all mime 
types ("*") in the end. Usually they are commented out to avoid wasting 
paper by printing unknown or unprintable files (like MP3), because they 
tell CUPS to print unknown files (file types not matching the other 
rules) raw (without applying any filter or driver). If you print from 
Windows with the Windows driver being used on the client, the server 
should print raw, and for this case these rules have to be uncommented.
