Hi John,

Yes, you are correct. That does say PDF, and yes, I have seen that before. All of the printers I use say that, but that does not mean that it is printing in PDF format. Right now I have a HP OfficeJet Pro 8000 inkjet connected to this computer, as well as a Samsung ML 1710 monochrome laser connected. Both of them say language type, when you delve deeply as you did, PDF. From something I read in CUPS or the Open Printing site roughly 2 to 3 weeks ago I had the understanding that the PDF language type is the way the Linux system is communicating through CUPS with the printer, and that has nothing to do with the output type. Without changing that setting at all, all of my LibreOffice documents print perfectly fine with these printers, as well as with an HP 2605 color laser, and a Konica-Minolta 1400w page pro monochrome laser. I never touch the printer language setting in that box.

I guess I still haven't made it clear.

Libreoffice DOES automatically select the printer which is set as the
default in CUPS, which is a Laserjet 4M+. That is not the problem.

The incorrect default setting is deep in the Print dialog box, not in
the first window that opens when you select File>  Print or do Ctrl-p.
To see what I am talking about open the Print dialog box, which
will open displaying the General tab, then click on the Properties buton
(for the printer). This will open a child window with the default tab
"Paper" selected. Click on the "Device" tab, and then on the "Printer
language tab" button. That is where I see it set to PDF by default. I
have to change it to one of the Postscript options to get correct

Sorry for the confusion.:(
