Most Wanted postscript to plain text filter for cups
 
I have this wine application that prints plain text.
Wine passes it through its PS Driver to cups.
Now I need to filter it back to plain text for the Printer.

I tried to configure the Filter using KDE Print, but I cannot seam to get it working...

Does someone know the steps?
Or is there a Filter ready for download?

The probability of such an application working reliably is very low. In many/most PS renderings, the original text is lost, irretrievably. What you are asking for is a lttle like saying 'The answer is 6; what is the question?'.

What you probably want to do, though, is use something like ghostscript to render the PS to hardcopy on your printer. Ghostscript comes with decent drivers for a very large list of printers.
