I can also confirm that printing to a kyocera FS-1300D (as a postscript-

This seems to be due to the postscript file generated from the PDF by
ghostscript (called by the pdftops cups filter in my case).
To test I tried to print my .bashrc: lp .bashrc
1. I redirected the final output a file and then sent to the printer by hand:
printer does not print and hangs.
2. I modified cupsfilters.convs such that I get the PDF. I then used pdf2ps to
generate the postscript file. Sent it to the printer: printer does not print

to the printer and it works.
4. I used ps2ps on this postscript file: the generated one does not work and
I called gs with -sDEVICE=pswrite to genrate a postscript file from the PDF:
that one worked.
The only way I may print using cups with a kyocera FS-1300D as postscript
printer is by printing to a file as PDF and then using acroread to actually
