I don't know how to solve the problem of *any* script, and the above
information unfortunately doesn't help me help you.  If you can start
with a single script, I can try telling you how to customize variables
in ps-mule.el to have that script printed, assuming your printer has
the necessary fonts built into it.

Alternatively, you could set up ps-print to pipe its output into
Ghostscript by customizing ps-lpr-command and ps-lpr-switches to
invoke Ghostscript.
