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 220.127.116.11.
But Wheezy certainly does not in general have printing problems.
