thank all of You for your kind replies!

Further investigations found that is the "print as image" flag in the 
printer driver that makes a difference:

Reader                 : print as image : result
Adobe Reader 9 Win     : no             : OK
Adobe Reader 9 Win     : yes            : cannot print doc error
Docucom PDF plus 9 Win : no             : WRONG RESOLUTION
Docucom PDF Plus 9 Win : Y/300dpi       : OK
Ubuntu Adobe Reader    : no             : OK
Ubuntu Adobe Reader    : yes            : cannot print doc error

We are a bit concerned that a random setting of this flag will prevent 
some customers from printing our catalogue, or it will be printed as 

I'd be interested to learn what does this flag mean, anyway...

again, thank you very much for your support,
