My intended print setup is what I've been using for several years without
change. I have an HP 4100mfp [a Real Printer(tm)] which lives on ethernet
and happily auto-detects plain ASCII, PostScript, or HP-PCL. It is the
default print queue for everything.
If I know a document will fit only one page, I just use 'lpr' and I'm
done. If I know it will be more than one page, I use 'a2ps' to either
print it n-up or duplex or both. For TeX output, I use 'dvilj4' and it
Just Works(tm) (provided I remember to use "-l" when I want landscape).
The issue was apparently that the printer didn't like a job formatted
for A4 paper when only US Letter (and US Legal) were available. Changing
the Page Setup in 'gnumeric' got it printing again.
