Acrobat 7 printing on Suse 9.3

More problems on 9.3 :

I'm finding it impossible to print PDF documents with Acrobat Reader 7, as bundled with Suse 9.3.

If I print to a (postscript) printer, I get blank pages.

If I print to a postscript file, and view it in ghostscript, I *also* get blank pages! There is content in the postscript file, but I don't know enough postscript to work out why it comes out as blank pages.

This happens with any pdf file, even trivial ones created from OpenOffice. Is it happening for anyone else? I'm somewhat bemused that such a basic function could be not working. Possibly it's something to do with CUPS or something, but everything else on my system seems to print ok.

I'm happy to send sample postscript and pdf files to anyone who wants to dig into this further. For now I'll use KGhostView, though that sometimes does a terrible job of pdf printing.
