Bug Description

Binary package hint: evince

I frequenty run into this error when attempting to print using Ubuntu 7.01 gutsy 64 bit:

Pages that print out end up with the following content:

ERROR NAME;
       ioerror
COMMAND;
      fill
OPERAND STACK;

Printing using Gimp's gutenprint functionality works flawlessly, by comparison, and CUPS print test page works similarly well with my 64 bit arch.

Any assistance I can offer with system setup details and/or sample testcase files (typically this happens with .pdf rather than .ps I *think*) are gladly offered.

Thank you for your bug. What printer driver do you use? The issue could be similar to bug #172550

that's not a driver, do you use hpijs as described in the other bug?

No, the printer is a Postscript printer, and is made by Brother, so no HP
fuzzy weird shim is required.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue that you reported is one that should be reproducible with the live environment of the Desktop CD of the development release - Intrepid Ibex. It would help us greatly if you could test with it so we can work on getting it fixed in the next release of Ubuntu. You can find out more about the development release at http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/ . Thanks again and we appreciate your help.
