I want to change the default printer queue on an 11.2 system. So, as I

tells the proper thing. The odd thing is that all other users still have
the old printer as the default. Implying that the default printer is
per-user. I can buy that. Is that the case?

Yes - see

That did it. Short answer: each user needs to run:

lpoptions -d newDefaultQueue

Perhaps an lpoptions section is needed in the KDE's Personal Settings.
Perhaps GNOME already configures this?
