Description Travis Saling 2002-10-15 22:40:51 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021010

Description of problem:
Whenever I go to print a document in gedit, I have to switch to the paper tab
and explicitly select "US Letter". There doesn't appear to be a way to select
this as the default paper size. In the Red Hat Printer Config I have my only
printer set up for "Letter", not "A4"; and there's no other obvious place to
select a default page size.

This may not be linked only to gedit, but it's hard to find other gnome2 apps
that are printing-enabled to check this.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run gedit
2. Select "Print..."
3. Click on the "Paper" tab, and note that the page size is A4.

Actual Results:  N/A

Expected Results:  N/A

Should also be reported to bugzilla.gnome.org and comment added to this bug 
with a link to the gnome.org bug (and vice versa)

Comment 2 Travis Saling 2002-11-04 21:33:25 UTC
Okay, I've reported it to bugzilla.gnome.org (including a link to this bug
report). Here's a link to that report:

Thanks a lot (I'm not sure how this is intended to work or where the paper 
setting gets saved).
