Q&A: Can I Configure a Default Papersize For All Printers?


Can I configure a default papersize for all printers?


The default papersize for UCS is “DIN A4”. It is set for all printers in the file /etc/papersize.
To configure your desired paper size edit the file and set it to the needed value (ie “letter”). It will apply to all printers in Cups, no matter what the printer configuration tells.
