Printing from Acroread is a pain. In particular it seems to do a really bad job at outodetecting our network printers. It also never seems to remember my previous settings. I've had best results by manually selecting 'custom' (the bottommost printer) and using kprinter as that. Once kprinter's dialog is started I have to 'really' select the settings I need.

Seemed worth trying, but "apt-file find kprinter" returns nothing.

kprinter is part of the kdeprint package, the kde printing system that for me works nicely and flawlessly with cups. If you have cups installed it should work out of the box.

You could probably try another command that prints ps-files from the command line, say lpr -P<name of printer>
