I want to change the default printer queue on an 11.2 system. So, as I
have always done, as root I ran lpadmin -d newQueue. For root, lpstat -a
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?

Or do it by using the web based print management system and change the
"system" default.
