Hi Carlos,

in OOo, this setting currently seems to be locale-dependent. For a
de_DE locale, I get A4, for e.g. an en_US one I get letter.

Argh. My system locale is en_US, but I set OOo to Spanish settings (options/language). But this does not explain why "spadmin" can't change it.

are bug reports about that already:

Ok, I'll have some reading.


Yes, this is the issue. No solution given.

Too technical for me :-)

No, I can't see the Novell bug:

] You are not authorized to access bug #272406


So far as I can see, last activity on this was last August, and there is no solution at all for us users.

I got some interesting results by running:

LC_PAPER="es_ES.UTF-8" /usr/lib/ooo-2.0/program/spadmin

so I will try to write that setting somewhere.

I really wonder why OOo has to take that setting into account instead of the one in the printer configuration in cups or its own spadmin :-/

Ok, thanks, at least I can do something to hack it up.
