No printer options? There must be a dialog.

Do you intend to print on that printer?

Proofreading on screen is always a _bad_ idea. Print the file and proofread on 
paper. That's much more sane.

GSview tells me that the PS file contains of two pages. If you try to print 
page 1 first, then page 2 (to file, that is), can you import one of the 
resulting files into Scribus?
