Hi everyone,
I've tried to print some notebooks directly to the printer using my
Brother HL-10h laser printer, which has a mode to support a postscript
fonts. I've printed postscript files on that printer without any
problems for a couple of years or so until the mathematica 3.0 arrived.
That's when the problem started. I was trying to solve the prblem
myself, but after waisting already enough time I decided to consult the
I am using a mathemica 3.0 for Linux.
Firstly, I can print a notebook to the file; which is outputed as a
postscript file. This looks okay, and I can preview it using ghostview
Secondly, when I send the very same file to the printer that's what I
get on the page printed:

** Error Print BR-Script Mode **
Error                       : undefined
OffendingCommand: ISOLatin1Encoding
Data                        : 4F 4C 61 74 ...... etc
                                : O   L  a   t  ..... etc
Stack                       /Encoding

If the above means anything to you please help me.
I am desperate.

Thank you.
