It sounds like there is either a) no bannertopdf filter or b) no pstoraster filter to handle the output from the bannertops filter in CUPS 1.4.8.

Does printing a normal document work?

However when I try to print a test page now the CUPS web admin tool is showing me "Unsupported format 'application/vnd.cups-banner'!"  I'm once again pretty clueless of what to do; a websearch didn't help me out so much for this one, either.

It moved on and gave me another error at some point complaining about not having the permissions to be able to access /dev/lpt0, so I changed the permissions on the device in order to allow cupsd to access it.
