Hi John;
Does the above mean that prior to putting in a new Slackware the printing was
working properly?  Is it the same version of slack? How about CM, is it the
same version as before?

When you installed the new slack did you have /home on a separate partition?
If so, did you make ANY changes to any of the configuration files or in CM
configure > Preferences?  Do you have another user account that you could test
CM printing on? (user "test" or whatever name you want).  Try setting up a test
account and install CM for that user so that it has its own config files. If the
printing is okay for the "test" user (and they don't use shared config files),
then the problem is not CM.  If both users exhibit the same problem, try
printing a known good pdf file and see if it also has this problem.  Then let
us know the results.
