Okular uses the default size setting in the PPD if nothing else overrides

I was considering '/etc/papersize' as a possible culprit. I'm not sure
how the contents of that file (as well as the PAPERSIZE environment
variable, if it exists) articulates with CUPS' lpoptions and the default
size setting in PPD.

curty@einstein:~$ paperconf
a4

That's what I want (reflecting the contents of /etc/papersize here).


/etc/papersize is set to letter. The paperconf command responds with letter as well.
