I'm trying to print several PDF files exported from Google Docs. When I open them in Document Viewer, hit Ctrl+P and select my printer, it spews out several pages of garbage which appear to be the raw code of the file (It starts with %PDF).

What's the problem here? Is there any fix, or at least a workaround?
