Here is what works for me. It isn't pretty, but it works:
To print postscript files from Mathematica
------------------------------------------
1. Highlight the cell containing the graphic output.
2. Graph -> Convert Selected Graphic -> Convert to Postscript
3. Style-> Attributes -> Formatted (warning - this produces a _big_ text cell)
4. Save As Special -> Plain Text (creates a text file)
5. Edit the file you just saved to include only the "PS-like" commands:
- the beginning of the file should look like:
%!
%%Creator: Mathematica
%%AspectRatio: 1
MathPictureStart
%% Graphics
....
....
[ bunch of stuff ]
....
....
- the end should have:
% End of Graphics
MathPictureEnd
6. Run psfix (mine is in /usr/local/math/Bin/Display/psfix) on the file:
psfix file > file2
7. file2 is a postscript file you can print,include in other programs, e.g. with
"lp -opostscript file2", or similar...
Good luck - I'm using ver 2.2 on a HP 9000/735 running HP-UX 9.01.
