Page size in printing

I want to set the page size of the printouts to 6' x 6' which is not one of the default size. I am using CUPS and my printer is Epson LQ-870. Is there any way to do so? Thanks for helping.

I think there are a number of ways to do this but I think I'd do it by going to:


click on configure printer and then a dialogue box pops up, type in root as the username and the appropriate password, in there you can change the media size.

hope this helps

Thanks for your suggestion but this method can only change the paper size to some default sizes. I want to have customized sizes.
