It prints perfectly here. What print system do you use (cups, ...) and what are the settings in acroreads print dialogue?

using cups..
and command is 'lpr'

i'm not sure if that's what u r asking..

even though i use 'lpr', it doesn't mean i'm using lpd right?
i'm not sure there

but i configured my printer using cups..
and acroread initially set to use kprinter.
but i use lpr..( don't know how to set it default, so i just change it every time when i open acroread)

thanks

no, cups offers commands with the same names and very similar syntax to be a plugin replacement. One way it can happen that cups is not used is when you installed lpd after cups and the lp* utils are overwritten.

lpr is fine. I was especially interested in the "Postscript Options" options section of acroreads print dialog. Do you have "Optimize for Speen", "Download Asian Fonts" or "Save Printer Memory" on? Those sometimes caused trouble on my setup because ghostscript wich is used by cups in the background bailed out on some documents. Then only a few or no pages at all were printed and the cups webstatus page for my printer stated "no pages found". I got rid of most of the cases by not using those options.

Hopefully it works for you, too.
