Description Gerald Cox 2008-11-01 12:13:37 EDT
Description of problem:  When trying to print a PDF file, printer settings for Okular are "stuck" at A4.  Cannot find way to change default to US Letter.  I did find the method to change the print size for a individual file when requesting to print, however even though I am able to change to US Letter size, when the file is printed, the instructions to the printer are A4, e.g. I get a message on the printer to load A4 paper.  

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

Okular 0.7.2

How reproducible:  Everytime I try to print a PDF

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Open PDF
2.  Open Print Dialog
3.  Change papersize to US Letter
4.  Print
Actual results:
Receive message on printer to Load A4

Expected results: 
File prints with US Letter paper size

Additional info:
Workaround is to use Evince.  Works fine.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

This appears to be an upstream bug.  

I think it's already been reported @ bugs.kde.org, I'll see if I can find it.
Comment 3 Steven M. Parrish 2009-01-09 16:06:29 EST
Thank you for the bug report.  This issue needs to be addressed by the upstream developers.  Please submit a report at http://bugs.kde.org. You are requested to add the bugzilla link here for tracking purposes. Please make sure the bug isn't already in the upstream bug tracker before filing it.

PS: I did check upstream and was unable to find a match.

4 1/2 years later, and this bug is still present.  Wow!
