Hi,
maybe you should try the turboprint drivers (http://www.turboprint.de/).
Your printer is not listed in the supported printers, but the BJC 250 is.
Those drivers are much faster than the standard one, and easy to install.
Good luck.

You could also try reading here and also here. The second link tells you how to setup CUPS and the PPD file.
