I thought I posted a question, but I can not find the thread to post my

Original question was that printing from Evolution 1.4 on SuSE 9.0 KDE
would not work. I was having to cut and paste documents into kwrite or
Ooo to get my emails to print. What was interesting was that the jobs
woiuld hit the local CUPS queue and then start feeding into the buffer
of the printer (data light indicating job coming in). The queue would
empty then the printer buffer would just empty without printing (or an
error). Normaly I would blame CUPS or the Printer if it wasn't for the
fact that it was Evolution only having the issue. 

This weekend I figured it out. The issue is that Evolution (or maybe it
is an underlying KDE thing) had the printer set to paper type A4 instead
of US Letter. Once I changed that the printing worked. What is still an
issue is that I have to keep changing that setting for every print. This
is kind of irritating. 


I've had this problem myself, starting with 1.4.6 and continuing when I
switched to the 1.5 stream.  Even printing to a postscript or PDF file
would produce a file which could be viewed but not printed.

I've got an open bug on this at

I'd like to not only know how to make the paper setting persistent, but
also how to make it use kprinter the default 'location' instead of lpr
and not have to select custom and then type in kprinter each time.
