Rep: Reputation: 0 - Page Defaults

Hey guys,

I've run into a few issues running 1.1.2 on Debian Sarge/Gnome, and have searched around but still not found an answer, so I figured I'd go ahead and ask you guys.

For some reason, it won't save changes to the page defaults. I've tried changing both the page margins and the paper size and saving them as the default template, but still when I exit or open a new document the old defaults load up. I've tried setting /etc/papersize to 'letter' instead of 'a4', but Office still loads a4 as the default. I've also tried using the $PAPERSIZE environmental variable, but still no result. I've also looked at the /usr/lib/openoffice/share/psprint/psprint.conf file, but the paper size (PPD_PageSize) is set correctly there as well. It's not exactly critical, but it is a pain in the butt.

At this point I'm thoroughly lost. Any help?
