For quite some time now, the print to pdf function has not been working.


I open a document or web page and choose print from the file menu. I choose pdf from the printer menu.


I'll get a message that the printer is paused. I open the printer icon in the dock and click on the resume icon. Nothing happens.


I also got a message saying that software needs to be installed and to check the Software update in the Apple menu, and if it's not Apple software that needs updating I have to go elsewhere, presumably Adobe.


Apple Software update is up to date. My Adobe Suite, while not the most recent issue, is Lion compatible, including Acrobat.


I've seen posts by people who are having problems with print to pdf not embedding urls when it makes pdfs, but for me it's not making pdfs at all.
