What I really meant was that the PostScript file produced by MPL starts
with '%!PS-Adobe-3.0', which I thought meant Postscript level 3.
Changing the 3.0 to 2.0 by hand still doesn't allow it to print. dvips
output files print fine on this printer, and they start with
Confusingly enough there are two kinds of version numbers involved, here.
There is the PostScript language level, which can be 1, 2, or 3.
Additionally there is something called DSC (Document structuring
conventions), which gives additional information in PostScript comments
(lines starting with a percent sign). This DSC thing allows PostScript
viewers to go back to the previous page, allows to print single pages
from a PostScript file, etc. DSC also comes in several versions.
The "%!PS-Adobe-3.0" indicated that the document confirms to DSC version 3.
This does not imply anything for the PostScript language level. Since
all DSC stuff is most probably ignored by the Printer, it should not
cause any problems.
Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm afraid this didn't help. The
workaround I found was to do a dvipdf on the LaTeX file which included
the MPL doc, read it with Acrobat Reader, and tell acroread to print it
at Postscript level 1.
GhostScript has also a converting-fancy-PostScript-into-simple-PostScript
functionality which might come in handy here.
All the best,
