comment How do I make control-click in Opera open new tabs?
Thank you -- I haven't tried this since Opera fixed the original problem, but this seems very helpful.

comment How do I make control-click in Opera open new tabs?
This didn't work for me at all - this changes the keyboard behavior, but not the mouse.

I know; this doesn't help since my hands are used to control-click. Since I use many computers, I can't use Opera everywhere.

Yes, that's what I linked to. Unfortunately, it's so hacky that it doesn't really work on https sites.

I am aware of this. I want my browsers to be uniform.

Oh, and just to be clear, here is an example of a paper like the ones I print. math.jussieu.fr/~leila/grothendieckcircle/tenstop.pdf

comment Good Virtual Printers (with cropping) for Windows and Linux
I agree that this is the source of the problem. The thing is that if I just print directly from Acrobat (no scaling, 2-up), it prints fine. Also, on Windows, everything prints quickly, no matter whether you do 2-up or not, with or without priPrinter (although priPrinter itself sometimes takes a while; maybe it or Windows do some optimization behind the scenes). Perhaps what I need is something that will cut down on the resolution of those images after doing the 2-up? (Vectormagic seems to be made for small pictures; it refuses to process papers with many pages and large resolution).

Also thank you for mentioning impose+. I'll try it out; I have doubts about how reliable it is (it uses psutils), but it might at least automatically remove margins.

Here's my usual experience: first, it's a pain to make the pages rescaled the right amount (which varies depending on size of margins). If I generate PS in a dumb, file -> print -> to file kind of way, and apply pstools, I often can't open the result with ghostview. If the printer (top-of-the-line LaserJet of my department) prints anything at all, it takes an hour to print each page, and refuses to print double-sided. Any ideas? Again, thank you!

Thank you for your answer. The papers I'm printing are almost exclusively from djvu or pdf files (often scans, so images not text). Which PDF reader (Evince, Acrobat, ??) would generate PS that follows those conventions? What about Djview/djvulibre? Is there any way to force them to do it better?
