Our 21 page catalog file.

Problem description: 
LibreOffice 3.5.4.2 Build ID: 350m1(Build:2)
Running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on lan.
We've been doing this since 2005, successfully with WindowsXP and Linux.
I export to a PDF, our 21 page catalog.
Print to Brother 5370 or 5240 laser.
WindowsXP prints all 21 pages from PDF.
When PDF is printed from Linux, printer stops on page 8 with error:
  ERROR NAME;
    typecheck
  COMMAND;
    image
  OPERAND STACK;

This document prints ok directly from LibreOffice.
The PDF prints ok if created by printing to PDF file via print dialog options.
Error only occurs only on linux when PDF is created via LibreOffice Writer PDF export function.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Export catalog to PDF
2. Print PDF file from linux Evince document viewer 3.4.0 to Brother 5370 or 5240 BR Script printer.

Current behavior: Printer stops with error

Expected behavior: 21 pages of our catalog

Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: 3.5.4 release

Version: 4.1 RC1
Platform: Bodhi Linux 2.2 x64

Works fine for me with 4.1 RC1, exported to PDF and printed with Adobe reader, no errors.

Marking as WFM

If the problem still exists for you on version 4.0 or later please set bug to UNCONFIRMED and we'll investigate further

I see you used Adobe reader.  I installed it and it works fine.  I had originally been using the Evince Document reader that comes with Ubuntu.  It still has the problem.  I guess I'll file a bug report with it, instead.
