Debian has no parallel port support by default. Two solutions:
1) Simple: run modconf as root, look for either “parallel printer support”or parallel port support or similar, and build this module into the kernel. (Which kernel do you have?)

Here are the steps to get 600×600 printing working. This has been tested with CUPS-1.1.6-1, redhat-7.1.
1) Generated a PPD file from 'PPD-O-Matic' with 'hl1250 driver' and save it to /usr/share/cups/model.
2) Installed the
cupsomatic Perl script to
chmod 755 /usr/lib/cups/filter
chmod 755 /usr/bin/foomatic-gswrapper
mpage-2.5.1-5 if needed.
5) Setup the printer via CUPS's web interface http://localhost:631
8) Use ghostview-3.5.8 to open a pdf or ps file and use
ghostview's print menu.
10) If you are using 600×600, change to 1200×600 from CUPS's web interface, and then every thing work fine.
