Problems when printing PDF/PS on Brother HL-5050

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – I have problems printing out pdf / ps documents on a locally connected laser printer. Files are printed very slowly or not at all. I also get errors printed with one pdf (error name; typecheck / command; image). The setup is: Ubuntu 11.10 64bit Brother HL5050 Laser Printer connected via USB. Printing from evince, xpdf (lpr) or Adobe Reader 9 Printer newly installed, using the recommended Brother HL-5050 BR-Script3 driver. Printing to pdf or ps works fine - printing out the result does not. Printing webpages from Firefox works fine. All files, for which I tried, printed well from Windows XP (HowTos)
