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?

Everybody knows that the master default paper size setting is in kde
panel, under Country/Region & Language, then under the 'Other' tab at the far

Did I write anything about KDE? What do Gnome users do? XFCE? LXDE? Other

That was presumptuous of me, I apologize. Take a look at

## Path: System/SuSEconfig
## Type: yesno
## Config: groff
## Default: yes
# Update /etc/papersize to get page sizes for groff correct? (yes/no)
## Type: string(letter,legal,a4,b5)
## Config: groff
## Default: ""
# By default, SuSEconfig tries to get the correct page size
# from your system wide locale (i.e. from the system wide value of
# LC_PAPER, which is possibly inherited from the system wide value of LANG).
# If you want to set a page size for groff different from that,
# you can set GROFF_PAGESIZE to the following values
# letter, legal, a4, b5
