Hi Philipp,

I have following script for printing to PDF:

#!/usr/bin/env sh
OPEN_PDF="open -a Preview"

perl -pe 's/\e\[[\d;]*m//g;' | \
	iconv -f utf-8 -t iso-8859-2 -c | \
	a2ps -B -X iso2 -o - | \
	ps2pdf - $tmpfile

$OPEN_PDF $tmpfile
sleep 1
rm $tmpfile
#### END

set print_command = "/path/to/the/script/above.sh"

Change OPEN_PDF command to suit your needs.
You need perl, iconv, a2ps and ghostscript.

To create PDF with with all headers run before printing.
:unset weed

My PDFs are quite ugly. If anyone has prettier way I would also like to see it.
