Timothy, I do not get you. There are several options for viewing and
printing PDF files on Linux: Adobe Acrobat for Linux,
xpdf. ghostscript newer than 5.0... My experience shows that printing
pdf on Unix is usually simpler than on Microsoft platforms. The
Windows drivers are like everything made by Microsoft or for
Microsoft: buggy, sleazy and unreliable.

Good luck
