Print to Unix systems without direct print er access does not quite work
Authored by: PeteVerdon on Apr 27, '05 11:25:31AM

It sounds more like your printer doesn't understand PDF natively. That's not at all surprising - most big lasers only speak Postscript and plain ASCII. My department's printers are new this year; the old ones didn't do PDF. As I suggested, you'll need to include pdf2ps or something similar in the process; off the top of my head I don't know the best way to do that. I'm sure some of the more skillful Bash users who've already posted here can help.
