Description Derek Tattersall 1999-10-12 15:11:08 UTC
The /etc/a2ps-site.cfg specifies the default medium as A4.
For a US product it should be Letter.  Perhaps it could be
handled properly using the LANG environment variable?

Comment 1 Tim Powers 1999-10-27 16:55:59 UTC
OK. I have added the --with-medium=Letter configure option to the spec
file. This will be in the next release.


Comment 2 Jonathan Kamens 2000-06-02 02:47:39 UTC
This does not appear to be fixed in a2ps-4.13-1 -- I still see "--medium=A4" in
my a2ps-site.cfg.  Am I confused?

Comment 3 Tim Powers 2000-06-19 20:05:38 UTC
Use the version in rawhide instead. It does the right thing WRT building with
the --with-medium=Letter in there.
