I can't print at all after installing foo2zjs on Arch

I have a possibly related problem: I can't print at all after installing foo2zjs on Arch. I had to modify the makefile slightly (user: root, group: lp), but installation thereafter went without errors. I also ./webgot the 6110 colour profile, restarted cups manually, then plugged the printer in and added it via the web interface.

Now, whatever I try to print, the printer warms up and then does nothing. Looking at /var/log/cups/error_log, the only clear error I can find is complaints about ~/.ghostscript/cache/gs_cache missing.

The directory didn't exist, so I created it. Still no change: warms up, then stops. Last lines of log:

D [12/Feb/2009:17:41:55 +0100] [Job 15] File 0 is complete.
I [12/Feb/2009:17:41:55 +0100] [Job 15] Completed successfully.
D [12/Feb/2009:17:41:55 +0100] Discarding unused printer-state-changed event...

D [12/Feb/2009:17:41:56 +0100] [Job 15] Unloading...

I am thankful for any help, and will at least make a small donation if I can get this work.

$ cd foo2zjs
$ foo2qpdl-wrapper testpage.ps > xxx.prn
$ ls -l xxx.prn
-rw-rw-r-- 1 rick rick 92188 2009-02-12 12:05 xxx.prn

$ cp xxx.prn /dev/usb/lp0
   OR
$ nc 192.168.1.xxx 9100 < xxx.prn
What does that say?

Says nothing, but prints out a Redhat black & white test page...

$ foo2qpdl-wrapper testpage.ps > xxx.prn
$ ls -l xxx.prn
-rw-r--r-- 1 user user 92023 2009-02-14 11:29 xxx.prn
$ cp xxx.prn /dev/usb/lp0
$

Edit: Monochrome printout works from eg. Openoffice, colour printout does not.

Don't understand. Can you print or not?

I can print monochrome, but not colour. I'll investigate more later today, and will be happy to contribute whatever logs or other info needed.

My ghostscript version is 8.64-1, alas. Thanks for investigating!
