The files will not have the *.pdf or *.ps extension, there will have
filename as such: d00878-00 and will be deleted after printing (this is
wy you have to physically switch your printer off, to prevent deletion).
According to the installation, the files can well be
in /var/spool/cups/tmp or so; try to identify a ps or pdf file with the
file command.
