Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 468706
Evolution does not honor Page Setup page size, only locale setting
Last modified: 2013-10-06 21:33:42 EDT
Description of problem:
When printing, Evolution will ignore any printer settings or the configuration in File->Page Setup as to the paper size. It will use the paper size dictated by the locale.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Change the paper size away from your locales default (print to A4 with en_US for example)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. File->Page Setup
2. Set en_US system to A4
3. Print email
Printout is set to Letter size
Printout is set to A4 size
if you set LC_PAPER="POSIX", you can get A4 paper in en_US locale. This is more evidence that it is using the locale data.
This was subsequently fixed upstream:
