I use:

DeviceURI lpd://canon/print

where "lpd" is the protocol name, canon is defined in /etc/hosts, and
"print" is the queue name which is listed in the printer's
documentation.

I just selected a similar PS printer and didn't play with ppd files.
It worked in my case.

I used http://localhost:631/ to configure CUPS.
