Quite understandable given how picky these conversion tools seem to be. I'm currently sidestepping the issue with aliased mini scripts like this for local printing:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
pdftops $1 - | lpr -Pmyprintername
or like the following for secure network printing (works best with key-based authentication):
Code:
#!/bin/sh
pdftops $1 - | ssh user@remotehost 'lpr'
I'm not willing to give up on the smart filter, though. It seems I'll have to keep calm and carry on digging.
