Your directory structure slightly differs from the one I have on my RedHat system, still: are you sure that the "common" part of the "print" ext. entity  is necessary? All DocBook distributions I worked with had print/, common/ and html/ directories on the same level. Check the path..  although I do not understand how jade works at all if the path is wrong..

Hope this helps,
