Follow-up Comment #6, bug #19352 (project gnustep):

I had a look at the cairo PS file. It surely isn't a bitmap format. If you
have a closer look you will see a the lineto and moveto commands you would
expect. The whole file is incorrectly scaled and the font looks ugly. As far
as I can see from the PS file cairo has to create the glyphs of the font by
defining an image per glyph. This is a very bad sign. It could mean that cairo
has no idea, which replacement PS font to use for your screen font.
If I remember correctly you had some problems to get a proper screen font
from the cairo backend. Which font did you choose in the end? Was it a bitmap
font? This could explain the whole behaviour.
There is a big difference between art, which uses nfont where you may define
the font to PS mapping yourself and the cairo backend, which relies on cairo
to replace the font.

Could you look into the scaling problem yourself? Printing isnt currently on
my priority list and I remember you doing some great stuff there before.
