WORKSFORME (SUSE-10.0 RPMs for KDE 3.5.5)

(but this did work for a looooong time already)


you state: "Printing would not be successful because the ps file was generated 
            for A4 paper despite the printer settings indicating Letter" 

This is wrong. You can print a PDF on a different paper size than its internal format. This works for kpdf too. Just select the format you want. (Make sure the PDF fits on the sheet though).

You can even use the CUPS option "-o fitplot=true" to make a PDF scale to the media size. 

Use the "WhatsThis"-help in kprinter to find the explanations for all options.

See attached screenshot.
