What kind of software does this scree shows? And why do you think with
this that CUPS is setup as it should?

yes it sees some printer with this name 'PIXMA...', nothing more;

this shows that the software is using the lpr(1) command from base

it shows that you have NOT configured the printer PIXMA as a Generic
Postscript printer (as I said)! Please, drop all sofisticated PPD stuff, use Generic
(generated) Postscript PPD and ensure first that the CUPS test page
comes out (from the web interface) and after this, test from lpr-command
line from shell.
