I Am Not A Programmer.  I have gotten so consistently frustrated
trying to make lpr-buffer, lpr-region, tex-buffer, & tex-print work
that I have resorted to the following workarounds:

(defun lprl (r/b)
  "Print all or part of buffer with TeX literal mode."
  (interactive "cr(egion) or b(uffer)?")
  (save-window-excursion
    (let ((passage (if (equal r/b ?r)
                       (buffer-substring (region-beginning) (region-end))
                     (buffer-substring (point-min) (point-max)))))
      (find-file "/usr/own/f/hdwe/printer/hp/Lpr-scratch.tex")
      (delete-region (point-min) (point-max))
      (insert-file "~/tex/Tex-literal-hdr")
      (goto-char (point-max))
      (insert passage)
      (goto-char (point-max))
      (insert-file "~/tex/Tex-literal-ftr")
      (untabify (point-min) (point-max))
      (goto-char (point-min))
      (replace-regexp "\e.\\|\C-r" "")
      (save-buffer)
      (shell-command "latex /usr/own/f/hdwe/printer/hp/Lpr-scratch.tex") 
;Doesn't understand tilde
      (shell-command "dvips -f /usr/own/f/hdwe/printer/hp/Lpr-scratch.dvi | 
gsprint - color - ")
      )))
