Unhappy trying to use Microline 380 24 pin dot matrix with CUPS

I'm trying to get a Okidata ML 380 24 pin dot matrix printer to work with CUPS 1.1.14 under debian 3.0 r1.
I have a 9 pin OkiML 280 working perfectly with the same kind of Foomatic ppd I'm trying to use with this one.
The printer is clearly found by the system, it seems to be a driver or filter issue.
I've tried compiling CUPS 1.1.20, didn't help

I'm using these old printers because I dont need graphics printing at home, they're ok for moderate amounts of text.
--but the ML 380 is BETTER than the 9 pin ML 280

So I wondered if anyone has got such a printer working with Cups in debian and might have a hint
