Hi Leo,

Could you send me an image showing how it looks in Emacs?

Also, please, do the following steps:

1. switch to *scratch* buffer.

2. do:  M-: (insert (ps-setup)) RET

3. save in a file and send me back.

`ps-print-buffer-with-faces' will print a dark background buffer
into a .ps file with white background. This makes the text
difficult to read.
This is a feature.  See the variable ps-use-face-background for how
to override it.
I play with it. I put the buffer I want to print in another frame and
swap its foreground and background by modifying frame parameters so
that the change only happens in that frame.

But then printing still uses the global frame parameter's foreground
and background colors instead of the selected frame's. Is this a bug?
I don't know.  Vinicius, could you please look into this?  Thanks.
ps-print does not get color frame parameters; it only deals with faces.

The variables ps-default-fg, ps-default-bg and ps-use-face-background
are only relative to faces.

So, to get the frame parameters to print you could use some function like:

(defun my-ps-print-buffer-with-faces (&optional filename)
 (interactive (list (ps-print-preprint current-prefix-arg)))
 (let ((ps-default-bg (frame-parameter nil 'background-color))
       (ps-default-fg (frame-parameter nil 'foreground-color))
       (ps-use-face-background t))
   (ps-print-buffer-with-faces filename)))


Thank you for the answer.

However output from ps-print does not look good generally in a dark
background? Is this a known problem?
