F10 KDE4 - Okular Default Paper Size is A4 - Cannot override
Last modified: 2013-07-10 09:19:21 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):
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
Receive message on printer to Load A4
File prints with US Letter paper size
Workaround is to use Evince. Works fine.
