I've never heard of needing to put on PS in order to smooth with a fondant smoother.
I, too, roll out on a fine film of shortening. I put the fondant on the cake "rolled-on side up" and use my smoother on the surface very easily. I don't turn my fondant over to the side that was on the mat--that side will be somewhat tacky.
