(,GNU/Linux,cups) I want to use paper formats, which are

I can set the page dimensions manually (e.g. in Writer), but no way
to use the corresponding (in ppd defined) paper formats in the printer
settings dialog. So the result is never correct.

What is wrong with the result?

I already tried to set  all configs "...FromPrinterSetup" to true, but
no success.

Enabled "Use only paper size from printer preferences" in tab "Options" in Print-dialog and set the correct paper size in your printer settings.

Does the preview of the Print-dialog show the desired paper size then?

Any Ideas... web searched a lot, but could not find any usable
Thank you


Anyone? Did I miss some information?

Sometimes the printer itself is the problem, so you should mention which printer do you use.

If nothing helps, try a two step printing: First export to pdf, then print that pdf-document.

 Where could I get support?

This mailing list is suitable. Or "Ask" as Heiko mentioned. Or the forum Despite of the URL "" it is for "User community support forum for Apache OpenOffice, LibreOffice and all the derivatives".

The set of people who answer on these channels have little overlap.

Because you are working on Linux and Linux is a little bit special in regard to printing you might get help in the community of your Linux distribution as well.

Kind regards
