I have the same problem like you.  OpenOffice on an amd64 box does not
print.  Actually it even kills the spadmin command when trying to setup
the printer.  The only solution I have found to work fine under any
circumstances is to "print to pdf" and then print through evince or
through lpr

If anyone else has found something, I would appreciate to hear their
