Nobody else is seeing this issue?

> Starting several months ago, all KDE apps (e.g., Kate) no longer use the
> system printer settings. For example, in "Kickoff -> Computer -> System
> Settings -> Printer Configuration" I have US letter paper size set.
> However, Kate and other KDE apps all default to A4 paper size. I can't find
> a way to change this default, so I have to manually change paper size every
> single time I need to print.
> I'm running Arch Linux on several different computers (NUC, laptop,
> desktop and more). The problem appears on all systems. All packages,
> including KDE are fully up to date with Arch's most recent packages. The
> problem has persisted through several updates now. I estimate it has been
> going on for at least 3 months.
> Whenever I make a change (such as paper size) using "Configure your
> printers" in System Settings, I can see the change reflected in the
> printer's PPD file in /etc/cups/ppd. However, as I said, Kate and other KDE
> apps ignore that value.
> Is this a known bug? Is there a work-around?
> Thank you.
