Has anybody encountered a similar problem?

I am running Mathematica version 4 under Linux (SuSE 6.2)
on two computers. On both the installation worked without
problems and everything is fine except that I cannot 
print postscript from 3-dimensional plots. Any surface
plot simply shows up as a uniformly (pink) colored area
in the postscript file although it displays correctly in
the notebook. This happens for all 3-d graphics on both
my computers.

I did send such a notebook to Wolfram asking for advice,
but only got the answer (after about a week) that my notebook
printed fine on their system. When I asked for some help
tracking down a possible installation problem I never heard
from them again (although I am paying for so-called Premier

Any help would be appreciated!
