Thanks for your reply. I am sending you a postscript figure from my
upcoming Astrophysical Journal paper and the barebones Python/Pylab code
used to generate it.
I do not normally use the psdistiller or usetex options. I have changed
my rc settings by letting numerix = numarray. Otherwise, they are the
same as the default in all fields.
I am using matplotlib CVS (current as of yesterday). My operating system
is Debian "testing," which by default uses Python 2.3 (not 2.4). I always
just use Python 2.3 per the Debian default. The packages are current.
For the paper itself, I use Latex2e (AASTEX just has Latex macros to
help typeset papers for ApJ). But the problem shows up when I do ps2pdf
on the fig.ps file as well as ps2pdf on the whole paper. So I don't think
that's the issue.
I'm using GPL (not Aladdin) Ghostscript for the ps2pdf. Although fig.pdf
displays correctly in acroread and xpdf, it does not print correctly (when
I go print... in acroread 7). Using epstopdf produces the same thing: an
apparently fine pdf file of the figure that doesn't print properly.
