  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time,

Print papersize a4 problem


New member
Jun 7, 2020

I'm on POP OS 20.04 with an old office printer.

Printing via driverless works, but there is a problem with the paper size.

The printer has 2 slots for paper input.

Slot A: A3 paper

Slot B: A4 paper

I try to print a A4 pdf.

Printing via the default system print dialog uses Slot A (paper size A4).

Printing via Firefox uses Slot B (paper size iso_a4).

How can I get the default system print dialog to use Slot B as well?

I tried replacing /etc/papersize from "a4" to "iso_a4", but that didn't work.

Also echo $PAPERSIZE still gives "a4". Same for "paperconf".
