I'm using Breezy, and OOo prints fine for me. You probably don't want to
randomly upgrade your omputer just to be able to print (can't blame you).

OOo under x64 is a little weird beause it's not running as a 64 bit
application. It's actually running as a 32 bit app (at least on breezy).
Ubuntu includes a bunch of compatability libs so it can work. Perhaps Hoary
didn't do as good of a job here as it could have, I don't know. I never ran
Hoary-64. You might try enabling the backports and try using the OOo beta
from Breezy. Maybe that will work for you.
