Just some input in answer to the above question. I run SUSE 10.2, Cups 1.2.7, 
Ghostscript 8.15.3 and Scribus 1.3.4 with a Xerox Phaser 6120. I have no 
problem printing to this printer but I am not using Gutenprint PPD's. I use 
the PPD supplied by Xerox. This would seem to indicate the problem being 
discussed maybe in Gutenprint.
