I use almost the same setup (excepting R is compiled from source and the printer
is an HP Deskjet 690C) and it works brilliantly (better, in fact, than my Deskjet
1600CM which has a Postscript interpreter).  Unless I am mistaken, you didn't
mention whether you could print the R Postscript output directly, e.g.


 If so, it's not R causing the trouble.  The GIMP, like most other image
manipulation programs, simply interprets the Postscript and outputs a raster
image. which tends to be less likely to be screwed up by downstream programs.
