1. Name your Puppy version.
2. Name your printer model.
3. Name the printer driver you have installed.
4. Name the program that you are printing from.
5. Post a sample document with diacritics for testing purposes. Add a fake .gz extension on the file name so you can post it here as an attachment.

No reply? I guess it wasn't that important.

Let's start:

1.Puppy 5.7.1
2.Brother DCP-T300
3.debbi-1.3pet / dcpt300cupswrapper-3.0.2-0.i386.deb / dcpt300lpr-3.0.2-0.i386.deb (from Brother support)
4.pdf
5.file.pdf - original file (it is in archive.tar.gz)
out.pdf - scan of printout pdf (it is in archive.tar.gz)

A very strange thing is: I print same file (file.pdf) for the second time and is very well. Sad I can not explain why? Please, compare the two files in the arhive.tar.gz.

I try attach arhive.tar.gz, but unfortunately, it's not possible, why?

Is it because the file is too big? The forum has a limit.

I need to see your sample file.

I did a quick test with Slacko 5.6 and an HP laser printer. I used PeasyPDF as the printing app.

It printed correctly. The characters with diacritics were all there.

I then set up Precise 5.71 with a Brother MFC-J470. It also printed correctly.

I then printed it through Precise's own PDF app. That worked too.

Have you installed any different fonts or selected a different language? I wonder if that might be the problem.

Hy,

Also, now I print this pdf very well, but is very strange, and I can not explain why? , I use a bootable CD-close Puppy 5.7.1 with a stick for save sessions, without HDD. Maybe was a virus?!
