I pushed a patch that fixes this issue:

http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/4e47e10d5279

Greek letters and tex symbols are now replaced by the corresponding character in the Symbol font before printing.

Closing report.

The poor man's workaround is to use the "Symbol" font. Obviously this won't work on-screen as "Symbol" is a pdf/postcript font and you can't mix this with other fonts:

clf;
text (0.5, 0.5, 'g', 'fontname', 'Symbol');
print tst.pdf

This is a known issue.  The OpenGL backend has an onscreen renderer for TeX labels, but the backend print engine gl2ps does not.

Simple code showing the problem:

clf;
text (0.5, 0.5, '\gamma');
print tst.pdf

Sorry there should be a backslash before pm and before Delta.That is:

plot([1 2],[1 2])
text(1.1,1.1,'\pm\Delta')

print -dpdfwrite test.pdf
print -deps test.eps
print -dpng test.png

Using symbols in fltk, like plus-minus or the greek Delta, will show on screen, but can't be saved in pdf, eps of png. To replicate:

plot([1 2],[1 2])
text(1.1,1.1,'pmDelta')

print -dpdfwrite test.pdf
print -deps test.eps
print -dpng test.png
