    page size not supported by printer?


    Brought new printer last week, epson d88, and installed the relevent rpm no problem. However, when i try to print a web page im told that the page size, a4, is not supported? Prints fine on any other picture or document.

    You can select the output page format if you print from Firefox from example.

    Or you can force to use always the same page format in the cups configuration :
    http://localhost:631

    Thanks for the reply, however when i change the page format in firefox it makes no difference. ive selected 'scale to fit' and both landscape and portrait. both ways give the same error.
