Thanks for the reply.

I do have solutions, evince and epdfview do the job. This is a core 
business function.

Tried TDE R14 with Wheezy, same...tried the newer  hpcups driver and the 
older hpijs driver no joy.


I would prefer to use kpdf, probably used to work at some time, need to 
find out what changed. The devs are spending alot of time getting all 
the apps to work, afaikt, thought I would test ..again, kpdf. I usually 
use 'best of ' apps for business, it is getting harder to do with all 
the apps being part of desktop environments.
