I would call that "not working at all".

You are very strict ;-) or I didn't express myself very well:

Despite the warning the file is printed, just that additionally I get the warning and a non-essential image is
replaced by a blurry box.

The first variant:

cat test.pdf | gs -q -dSAFER -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pswrite -dFIXEDMEDIA -dPDFFitPage -sPAPERSIZE=a4 -sOutputFile='%pipe%lpr' -

gives the same warning.

The second variant:

cat test.pdf | gs -q -dSAFER -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pswrite -dFIXEDMEDIA -dPDFFitPage -sPAPERSIZE=a4 -sOutputFile=- - | lpr

works without warning (but still with the blurred box replacing the image).

Inside xpdf

gs -q -dSAFER -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pswrite -dFIXEDMEDIA -dPDFFitPage -sPAPERSIZE=a4 -sOutputFile=- - | lpr

prints the page without warning, with the blurred box and unfortunately without expanding the page.

Thanks again
