Description Mark van Rossum 2003-04-02 16:59:14 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030211

Description of problem:
In RH9.0 there is the file 
Postscript-Generic-PostScript_Printer.foo
in /var/spool/lpd/xxxxx

This file the default paper format is specified as letter.
For A4 users this is a problem.

Worse, the paperformat in the ps file is overridden by this default value it seems.
So even A4 files are not printed correctly.

Result: error on the printer such as
" %%[ Error: configurationerror; OffendingCommand: setpagedevice; ErrorInfo:
PageSize [612 792]"



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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. print postscript file (for instance from printconf)
2.
3.
    

Additional info:

To fix:

Edit Postscript-Generic-PostScript_Printer.foo
by hand.

Comment 1 Mark van Rossum 2003-04-04 14:07:35 UTC
Line 22 of Postscript-Generic-PostScript_Printer.foo becomes
  'default' => 'A4',

Closing bugs for old packages that have no maintainer.
