The printer is a big Canon photocopier, and it definitely prints Postscript.

Ionita, your file prints fine on an ImageRunner 5075.

Did you try  installing the PPD file here:

Also, is the copier connected to an ImagePASS  S2 print server?  (It 
should be a smallish box on the side with a small LCD screen and a 
few buttons.)  If so, you need to install the following instead of 
the drivers for the printer itself.


We've had lots of trouble in the past with ImageRunners and Macs, and 
Canon support for Macs is pretty crappy.
