Evince application on Windows 2012R2 RDP not printing

I have an Windows 2012R2 server. I connect to that server using RDP. When I start Evince.exe (a pdf viewer program) everything works fine, except for printing to the redirected printer. If I print, I get the standard printer dialog and it shows my redirected printer. When I print a pdf document using the redirected printer, I can see the job appearing in the printer queue for just a second and then disappearing again. But no printing occurs.

If I print to the Microsoft XPS printer, a .xps file is created properly. If I print a notepad using the redirected printer, it works fine. So the problem is purely with the redirected printer and Evince.

What could be the cause of this issue? I have tried to reset the printer spooler already using this in een elevated command prompt :

net stop spooler
DEL /F /S /Q %systemroot%\System32\spool\PRINTERS\*
net start spooler

But it still does not print. The Windows event logs show no errors or warnings. Anyone have an idea how to solve this issue? Could it be a permissions issue?
