Bug Description

After installing new Kubuntu 18.04 I got a font rendering problem when I print PDF directly from browser (chromium or firefox). I have to save PDF and print it from another program. I identified that the problem is in new Ghostscript version (9.22). There was no such a problem with Kubuntu 16.04 and ghoscript 9.18.

Details are there:
