With some PDF files, I have problems printing some pages on my Brother HL-5140 laser printer. In the printer settings for Adobe Reader, I had to select image file instead of PCL. It then printed it just fine. You can do the same by printing it to a file and then use gv or use lp or lpr whatever works best for you to print the ps file.
Since the manufacture is writing software for this model, send them detail information about the error.
Well, as it turns out that seems to have something to do with it. It seems that the printer won't print this particular PDF file directly. It prints from Open Office just fine! It also printed a different PDF just fine.
Seems to me that --does this sound correct?-- that postscript items go through the foomatic filters while the WYSIWYG printouts are spooled/delivered to the printer some other way?
How do I trace this odd behavior and fix it?
Thanks for pointing me in a good direction here.
