When using spadmin to change the default paper size of a printer, it is possible
to change the value with the dropdown box, but the setting isn't stored in the

I found this, as in OOo 3.2 it seems to me, the page size defaults to "Letter"
when the file "/etc/pagesize" is empty or not present. As i never heard or used
this file before, i thought changing a printers paper size with spadmin would help.

BTW: Within CUPS the paper size for the printer is set to A4, but it seems this
is not honored by OOo in any way. All other Gnome- or KDE-Apps do.

Please specify steps to reproduce bug.

this bug is now over four years old. The OOo-Version reported on is as old as the bug itself. We no longer use OOo since years ago. So it isn't possible to reproduce or remember the reported bug. I'm so sorry.
