CUPS printing to pdf writer from Java app fails

M

mtp

I can't print on my pdf writer using Java.

CUPS pdf writer CUPS Real printer (EPSON)
Mozilla/Dia OK OK
Java app (JEdit/...) KO OK

I followed the tutorial here:

http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/feature/17636.html

I've modified the pdf-writer to save its input. Here is an example:
