    OpenOffice Paper sizes

    Hello,

    I am having problems correctly setting the paper size for a dymo label printer running on gentoo linux.

    It is being configured through cups and the paper size has been set correctly here (as a test print works).

    However, when printing from openoffice I am unable to set the size correctly.

    When setting papersize through openoffice for the printer I do not get the opportunity to change it to what I want. Does anyone know where the config file the predefined paper sizes is kept?

    Cheers

    Just to confirm, if I use a program like Kate, it takes the page size directly from the printer settings on cupsd. Openoffice seems to get its own from elsewhere.

    When I installed OpenOffice.org, there was a program called OpenOffice.org Printer Administration (or something similar) - perhaps try looking in there?
