Here's I set up my /etc/printcap for use with WP8:

# Generic
lp|generic|Generic Printer:
This is just a spooler with no filter.  Since my printer (deskjet 600)
was supported directly by WP, I just send it out the parallel port raw. 
Works great and I can utilize all of my printer's features like draft
quality printing, which is unsupported in Ghostscript.

In WP I just told it to use lp as the printer and selected the dj-600

Good luck!
