I've had reasonable success with Konqueror. However, it sometimes generates
postscript that ghostscript won't process, so generating pdf doesn't work.
HP printers seem happy with the postscript that gs chokes on though. This
is kdebase 3.3.2 on alpha and 3.4.0 on sparc64 with ghostscript 7.07. I've
not tried it on any 32 bit platform.
