I.e. your are thinking about something similar to
`TeX-output-view-style' for printing?

Of course you can convert PDF to PostScript via gs (if available) and
send this to lpr.  But this would rather be done in the lpr
configuration.  At least on modern GNU/Linux systems, I'd expect "lpr
file.pdf" to work.

BTW, my colleagues use XDvi's "File/Print" menu and they didn't even
know about "Command/Print" in AUCTeX.  As XDvi (gv too) allows to
print marked pages, it's often more convenient than "Command/Print" in

Bye, Reiner.
