Thanks.  Have you said which printer?  If so, I have missed it.  It is 
likely to be relevant.  I have absolutely no problems with my 
Samsung, nor with other Samsungs I have installed for other people, 
nor with HPs of various types that I have installed.  And PDFs print 
fine, as does everything else.

Are you using CUPS?  If HPLIP doesn't work, have you tried hpijs?  

There may, of course, be a problem with Xfce that I don't know about.  
All the Wheezy systems I administer are running Trinity  
But Wheezy certainly does  not in general have printing problems.
