I have a printer connected to chausie, my Linux box, and shared with CUPS. 
When I print something on chausie, it defaults to A4. When I print something 
on darner, it defaults to Letter, whether I'm printing from a KDE program or 
something else like Aurora, and I have to change it to A4. Here are the 
settings of the printer as seen from darner:

paperconf outputs "a4". Since both are set to A4, why do the apps insist on 
defaulting to Letter?

I believe in Yellow when I'm in Sweden and in Black when I'm in Wales.
