The problems is that the X front end writes out a bunch of extraneous
PostScript code before the magic cookie line
that tells a printer this is a PostScript program. The workaround
is to set up your front end's printing shell command to pipe the
code emitted by the front end through a filter that eats the
The following FAQ entry at the Technical Support website should
guide you through the process of fixing the problem.
