The Wadalab-test file is a CJK-LaTeX file. CJK-LaTeX embeds Japanese fonts
into the PostScript output, i.e. it doesn't matter whether your
Ghostscript has Japanese fonts.

For that you need Japanese fonts for Ghostscript. You write in your
next mail that you have Japanese fonts for Ghostscript, but the
description of you problem sound like Japanese fonts for Ghostcript
are missing. Please check

- is the 'ghostscript-fonts-kanji' package installed?
(check with 'rpm -q ghostscript-fonts-kanji')

- when printing from Mozilla, print to a file first and
not directly to the printer. Then call 'gs' on the
created file and check the standard output of 'gs'.
Does 'gs' complain about missing fonts? Don't use
gv for this test, it hides the output which shows you
which fonts are loaded.
