I've followed your advice, but unfortunately it didn't help. The
problem remains even if I just dump the Emacs output to a ps file via
cat-like 'ps-lpr-command'. So, the problem has nothing to do with the
printer. It seems that GEdit performs the rasterization of the image
on the "client" side, while Emacs always relies on the printer
capabilities.

Well, anyway, thanks for the support. I think I'll be able to survive
without Emacs printing :-) At least, I could live without it
before ;-) Thanks to the Unicode, one can always use some external
application like GEdit for the hardcopy production (well, in case he/
she doesn't need Emacs font-lock). I just hoped that someone already
has a solution.

Good luck,
Andrey
