I have a Samsung C410 printer attached to a Stretch server via USB and

I have had similar problems with various programs, especially Master PDF
Editor 4, but not exclusively. I think there may be some kind of fault
in cups that keeps changing the specified
Defaults:job-sheets=none, none media=na_letter_8.5x11in
which is correct. However when I try to print a PDF using Okular, the
paper size is set to A4. If I forget to change it to letter, the print
gets chopped off at the top.
Any ideas on what is causing this and how do I correct it?
page size to A4, regardless of what you have set it to. Running PCLOS
KDE5, and this problem did not exist in KDE4, but I have no idea where
the fault actually lies. I hope someone figures
it out and comes up with a cure. The latest updates seem to allow one to
correct the page size on a job by job basis--i.e., open the printer
properties for each item you want to print and
set it to Letter (8½ x 11) and it will usually stay for that instance.
PITA! One of my two printers seems to work better in that area--go figure!
