Is it possible to get some action, or at least some comments, on this bug?
Note that It's NOT just THIS bug ... you can trace this "prints A4 instead of Letter" behavior across literally YEARS of Qt, KDE, & KDE apps posts, bugs, etc. That's caused the problem that any single post seems to have "just a few" votes. Whether or not those issues all come back to 'this' is not certain.
"Can't print without intervention" is a pretty basic capability that's broken – and simply can't be rolled out in commercial – or F/OSS for that matter – product to a normal user base, expecting them to constantly work-around.
It seems to have come to rest here, in Qt bugtracker ... as of libqt4-4.6.1+4.6.20100209-1.1.x86_64, this is still an issue. As last poster (E.Recio) stated: "It affects all KDE/QT based applications."
Any insight's appreciated.
