Works fine in Ubuntu Oneriric (CUPS 1.5), except:

1. the filter lines need to go into the PPD file, not into printers.conf


*cupsFilter: "application/vnd.cups-raw 0 minolta"
*cupsFilter: "application/vnd.cups-command 0 commandtops"
*cupsFilter: "application/vnd.cups-postscript 0 minolta"

2. COETYPE=2 is the only one that worked for me. I got the correct value from a working Windows machine. Do “Print to File”, open up the resulting file and locate KMSECTIONKEY2.

Works in Ubuntu 12.04 as well — also with the cupsFilter lines put in the PPD (I’m using a PPD from Konica Minolta for the Bizhub C522).

Note that copying the filter script from this page will copy “fancy” quotation marks. Those need to be corrected (to regular quotation marks that bash understands) for the filter to work correctly. I didn’t catch that at first.

Thanks very much!

Secondary problem here is that filters always run as root, so if you need it to handle multiple users you need to find a way to have it load a separate configuration file per user… so far I haven’t found a graceful way to handle that.
I have however created a correct filter for use with PageScope Authentication Manager
