Printer Woes


Well, I had to re-install Slackware the other day and now my damn printer is not working. I went through and set it up using aps filter setup and selected the gimp ijs driver for the hp deskjet 890C and the test page printed very well. So then I decided to test it out by priniting the emacs buffer that I was working on in the background (just sort of had it open). So, across the top of the page, it says the date, then .procmailrc Emacs Buffer page 1. And that's it, nothing else. Then, it printed 4 blank pages. Any ideas what I am doing wrong here?

Thanks in advance.

Update: I tried to print this post (with Konqueror) and this is the resulting error message (huge!)

Code:
A print error occured. Error message received from system:
