I'm trying to print to a Ricoh Aficio printer, my OS is Ubuntu 11.10 on a Sony laptop.

When I connect it it all seems ok, in the sense the printer appears on the printer list and is recognised as the correct model.

However when I send a test page the folllowing occurs.

Instead of printing a test page it prints the following text:

"CUPS PrintTestPage"

not sure why this is happening... Any help would be much appreciated.
