Seriously. I thought this would be simplier.

Is there no library which would simplify drawing pixels and fonts and
pictures etc. and send result to printer queue?

Beats me. My mind-reading powers are in the shop for maintenance at the
moment, so I have no clue what your problem is.

Also, it might be a good idea to use search.yahoo.com to answer your
question? Or this new kid on the block, google.com?

A general question gets a general answer, since more isn’t possible
(since, as aforementioned psychic power is not available currently).

So why do you answer if you are on maintenence.

And no searching friends don’t have any goooood answers. At least not on
first few pages.

You could look into the cross-platform GUI toolkits, for example wxRuby,
FxRuby, QT or GTK. Some of these should should provide abstractions for
writing to a printer. wxRuby for example provides a variety of classes
which abstract the native printing frameworks on Mac, Linux and Windows:

http://wxruby.rubyforge.org/doc/htmleasyprinting.html (very simple to
use)
http://wxruby.rubyforge.org/doc/#printing (full control)
