Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 587016
KDE Print Dialogue Does Not Remember Previous Settings
Last modified: 2013-03-21 05:48:07 EDT
Description of problem:
In Konqueror (and most other kde applications) the printer settings previous selections are not automatically remembered next time printer dialogue is used nor is there a method to save the settings. This is both: time consuming when multiple pages with same settings requirements are printed and; a step backwards from the modus operandi of kde 3. It is an old bug present in Fedora 9 and later, just hoping reporting it here may make a difference.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Konqueror Version 4.3.4 (KDE 4.3.4)
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Using Konqueror Browser
2.File => Print
3.Options => HTML Settings
4.Uncheck Print Images
6.Then Repeat 2 and 3
Print Images Checked
Print Images Unchecked
This bug has been reported both to KDE and QT in the past. It'll be interesting to see if anything is done now it's in RHEL6

Well, in Fedora, and AFAIK RHEL6 inherits the relevant patches from Fedora, the Qt/KDE print dialog should at least be honoring the settings you set as defaults in CUPS, thanks to this Qt patch:
(The patch comes from the KDE bug report and handles Duplex, Color/Grayscale and Collate.)
But it still won't remember previous settings in the dialog itself.

Linking the Fedora bug (bug 480954) as well.
AFAIK, RHEL6 also carries this backported patch:
from upstream Nokia which is included in 4.6.3 and newer releases of Qt.
This patch makes the Qt/KDE print dialog default to the paper size set in the CUPS settings. See Fedora bug 523846.
Oops, I meant to link the KDE bug, too, but somehow it got forgotten.
(Well, it's just getting ignored. Does Bugzilla not accept upstream bug references on RHEL bugs? Sorry for the bugspam.)
