Description of problem:
When I print Japanese plain text file out with CUPS, broken characters is print
out. but Japanese PS file is ok without whether uses embedded font or not. it
means font selection is bad, I think. as far as I see that paper was printed
out, it seems that Courier font is used. Japanese text can't be shown with
Courier font. we need to use GothicBBB-Medium or Ryumin-Light.
