Printing by Acroread

Hey, I'm Debian (sid) user.
I use acroread 5.0.9 and I want to print pdf file by lpr command.

Until some days ago, the printing was good. lpr worked good with acroread

But after upgrade (apt-get install dist-upgrade) acroread does'not work with lpr.

I think it is not the problem of lpr since

cat psfile | lpr

works great.

How can I solve this problem?

Acroread for Linux is plagued with bugs. I permanently solved all of those problems by switching to kghostview. I suggest that you try kghostview and see if your problem goes away.

Have you tried "lpr fileName.pdf"

This should work, and has nothing to do with acrobat.
