The M1005 printer does not seem to react at all [ Debian sid is NOT SUPPORTED ]

I have bought a M1005 printer, which does work correctly under windows.

I have a debian unstable i386 machine with cupsys, foomatic and friends installed.

Then I installed foo2xqx according to the instructions on http://foo2xqx.rkkda.com/.

Now printconf and gnome-cups-manager detects the printer ok. But it does not work at all to print anything. The print jobs just gets added to the queue and nothing more happens. It seems like the printer never receives any jobs at all. What cause can this have?

After a job has been added I get lines in /var/log/cups/error_log like this:

I [24/Jul/2007:14:48:48 +0200] Adding start banner page "none" to job 36.
I [24/Jul/2007:14:48:48 +0200] Adding end banner page "none" to job 36.
I [24/Jul/2007:14:48:48 +0200] Job 36 queued on "LaserJet-M1005-MFP" by "root".
I [24/Jul/2007:14:48:48 +0200] Started filter /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstops (PID 14690) for job 36.
I [24/Jul/2007:14:48:48 +0200] Started filter /usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip (PID 14691) for job 36.
I [24/Jul/2007:14:48:48 +0200] Started backend /usr/lib/cups/backend/usb (PID 14692) for job 36.

Now I also get lots of lines like this (which I didn't get a little while ago, I don't know what I changed):

E [24/Jul/2007:14:48:51 +0200] cupsdAuthorize: Local authentication certificate not found!
E [24/Jul/2007:14:48:51 +0200] cupsdAuthorize: Local authentication certificate not found!
E [24/Jul/2007:14:48:51 +0200] cupsdAuthorize: Local authentication certificate not found!
E [24/Jul/2007:14:48:52 +0200] cupsdAuthorize: Local authentication certificate not found!

Before (when I didn't get the authentication problem lines) I occasionally got lines like this:

E [24/Jul/2007:12:58:39 +0200] [cups-driverd] Unable to read "/var/cache/cups/ppds.dat" - Permission denie
d
E [24/Jul/2007:12:58:39 +0200] [cups-driverd] Unable to write "/var/cache/cups/ppds.dat" - Permission deni
ed

I don't know what else I can supply to make it easier to help me. I have been trying to get this for work for half this day now and I'm getting a little frustrated.

Sorry, Debian unstable (sid) is not supported.

"sid" is subject to massive changes and in-place library updates. This can result in a very "unstable" system which contains packages that cannot be installed due to missing libraries, dependencies that cannot be fulfilled etc. Use it at your own risk!
