I am trying to print a PDF file, using Acrobat Reader, but after I go through all the "hoops" to get it to print, nothing happens, and yet I can print every other type of file with no problems whatsoever. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

From googling your problem it is either an incorrect path
to the printer or printer files. There is also a great chance it
is adobe reader itself.

hata_ph was trying to help you by asking that question,
you instead made an assumption of his intentions.

Be kind to those that try to help you.

You're right, and I do apologize, I should not have responded the way I did, although it was a "knee-jerk" reaction as a result of being frustrated by not being able to print PDF files, but I admit that it was wrong of me. But I would like like to know (if possible) if there is a way to remedy the problem with acrobat reader.

If only Acrobat Reader cannot print, it is not related to VL itself at all.
I can try to build acrobat reader-9.5.5 for you but i cannot garantee it will work...

Have you answered hata_ph's question:

I have the same version of cups and ghostscript as you, but I am not trying to print to a network printer, my printer is attached directly to my PC, And I have FINALLY figured out how to get Adobe Reader to print to my printer. What I ended up having to do is to install cups-pdf, then configure it to work with my printer, then tell Adobe Reader to print to the cups printer
