Printing from Adobe Acrobat
I've seen related postings on this topic here but none that addressed my particular problem. I can print to my CUPS printer using lpr -PDeskJet fine in many programs, just not acrobat. When I try, the printer icon pops up on my menu bar indicating that it got a job but nothing happens. After about 5 seconds the icon disappears but nothing was printed.
Some PDF files I've received have to be opened in acrobat because they have specific fields that can be edited only within acrobat (not xpdf, ggv, or gv). To work around this I'm printing to a .ps file, then running ps2pdf, then reopening the PDF in ggv and printing to the CUPS printer; not to terribly tough but it makes my wife miss MS Windows terribly. Any suggestions?
