I had a hard time, tracking down the reasons for bad printing quality
when using LibeOffice.

* When the printer language is set to PDF (either in File-> Print ->
Properties -> Device or via printer-properties)
  - grafics (logos) have pixeled edges
  - fonts are pixeled and of very poor quality
* When setting the printer language to "Postscript", the quality is good.
* When exporting the document to PDF and printing this directly (using
lp), quality is good.

I inspected the print-job attributes and did not find any relevant

How can I enhance the printing quality with printing language PDF?

Printer supports 600x600 dpi and 600x1200 dpi
Used Fonts: LiberationsSans (TrueType=)
Linux, CUPS
