This is a generic error from Ghostscript that it cannot find the fonts 
named in the postscript stream. 

I recommend installing all fonts not installed via rpm to be installed 
via kfontinstaller if you are using KDE, as it creates GS Fontmaps.

Upgrading from 7.07 to GS 8.1x and include CUPS support is a huge task 
and we all can thank Till Kammpeter and Mike Sweet from CUPS for the 
upgrades when the distros start shipping it.

The internal color model of GS is change and thus supporting those 
hundreds of printers with CUPS requires a lot of driver porting.
