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
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:
