Description of problem:
The Systems Settings > Printing (Printer configuration) and the Preferences >
Printing Manager (KDE Control Module) do not set up a printer in a coordinated
Editing printer properties in the Printer configuration window to select Letter
size does not set the page size universally. When printing from a KDE app, the
setting is determined from the Preferences > Printing Manager (KDE Control
Module) Instances tab > Settings button. The Page size default there is A4 and
must be independently set to Letter in order to assure letter size pages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Phoebe 3 fresh install
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set up page size in System Settings > Printing to Letter
2.Open a KDE app and print. The page size will be A4 by default
3.One has to discover Preferences > Printing Manager and navigate to the
Instances Tab, Settings Button to get a dialog to set the KDE printing page size
Actual Results: Page size has to be set in two places to make it consistent
Expected Results: There should be a single way to set the system-wide page size
for a printer.
This is a KDE problem of some sort.
This bug is reported against old release of Red Hat Linux or Fedora Core
that is no longer supported. Chances are that it has been already fixed in
newer Fedora Core release. If you still experience the problem with
current release of Fedora Core, please update the Version field (you may
need to switch Product to Fedora Core first) in the bug report and put it
back to NEW state.
