NOTE: In order to use the Pentax PocketJet II/ 200 with CUPS, after installing the printer in CUPS you most probably need to modify the printer's PPD file (it will be under /etc/cups/ppd/<printer-name>.ppd after installation in CUPS):

In the line

*FoomaticRIPCommandLine: "pentaxpj%B"

replace pentaxpj with pentaxpj_sh, so that the line reads like

*FoomaticRIPCommandLine: "pentaxpj_sh%B"

Otherwise, you most probably will get a "Filter failed"-error in CUPS and /var/log/cups/error.log will show Process is dying with \"Encountered error Broken pipe during fwrite\".
