What about /etc/papersize?

/etc/papersize is auto-generated by SuSEconfig, based on the value of
the RC_LANG variable, as defined in /etc/sysconfig/language.

Here RC_LC_PAPER was set to "". I changed it to letter and restarted YaST2
printer, but it didn't help. I suppose the change to language probably only
takes effect after log out and back in, and I'm not prepared to do that 20+
minute process for a while.

However, on reopening YaST2 printer and finding default paper in your printer
still grayed out, I deselected driver options, then selected it, with the
result that the gray went away, and I was able to select letter. I switched
printer tabs to see what they contained, then came back to printer options,
and found default paper in your printer again grayed out.

After finishing, I tried printing a test page, but nothing happens.
KJobViewer shows queued jobs, but nothing to indicate why nothing happens.
When I try to remove a job in KJobViewer, I get an error popup:

Unable to perform action "Remove" on selected jobs. Error received from
manager: Execution of lprm failed:.

BTW, printer is LaserJet4M on, and OS/2 has no problem printing
to it.

Try using OpenOffice to print some text.
