[blfs-support] Cups problem

I have a problem with CUPS. I installed Ghostscript, CUPS, and Gutenprint, configured my printer "printer" with a Gutenprint-driver, but it fails to print:

root [ ~ ]# lp -d printer /etc/exports
lp: Unsupported document-format "text/plain".

A test-page from the adminwebsite gives this error:

Unsupported format "application/vnd.cups-banner".

Both text/plain and application/vnd.cups-banner are in /usr/share/cups/mime/mime.convs and /usr/share/cups/mime/mime.types.

Any ideas where I should look next?
