Description markm 2008-03-28 06:02:55 EDT
Description of problem:

Cups-pdf does not have a choice of a paper size and produces documents in wrong
size. Desired paper size is A4, but cups-pdf uses US Letter. US Letter is being
used in US, but not in Europe. Cups-pdf should allow to select default paper
size or should pick it up from locale settings.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Actual results:

cups-pdf creates a document with a wrong paper size

Expected results:

correct paper size (selected by user or taken from locale settings)

Additional info:

I believe setting language to British English should also suggest A4 as a
default paper size :-)
Comment 1 markm 2008-03-28 06:10:51 EDT
ok, I can see that's actually problem with firefox 3 which does not allow to
change paper size, not cups-pdf. sorry for that.
Comment 2 Remi Collet 2008-03-28 13:38:47 EDT
Well. I close.
Comment 3 markm 2008-03-28 19:28:13 EDT
Well. The problem exists, but I am not sure, where the problem is.


in Printers settings I've selected paper size A4.

in Manfield (Firefox 3 beta) Page Settings I've selected paper size A4.

now I want to print a page using cups-pdf and... I get a PDF with paper size US

any thoughts?

Firefox 2 works fine - there is paper size selection on a printing dialog, but
it has been removed from Manfield - not sure if that is a Fedora's issue or
should I post it on bugzilla @ mozilla.org?

Many thanks,
