Whenever I try to print for the first time in a new app or new user, nothing
happens if I don't remember to go into the app's paper setup and select the
proper paper. It seems this is because I own no A4 paper nor A4 paper trays,
yet the system defaults to A4 paper.

In YaST2 printer, after waiting eternally for repo data I didn't ask for to
download, I select printer options for my only printer, and driver options
default paper in your printer is grayed out and set to A4. How do I change
the global default to letter? What mysterious file is set to A4? How do I
eradicate the possibility of using A4 paper? Is it even possible to acquire
A4 paper in the USA?

I had this problem when I first started using OpenOffice Writer.
I fixed the problem by toggling the various settings in the printer
configuration. When you toggle the right setting, the paper type becomes
ungrayed and you can change to us letter size. This progrem re-occurred
every time I started OpenOffice. I can't remember now how I got the
setting to be permanent. There is some kind of bug in the initialization
code of configuration.
