If it is a postscript printer, the papersizes will be parsed by the client
using the .ppd (PostScript Printer Definition) file, which is installed with
the printer driver.

Thank you, Stan.
Your answer might point to a solution. But... iirc, I don't have an
apsfilter. I print with the Windows drivers directly into the lpr. So
somewhere in that chain it has to be possible to set papersizes =P
I don't know of any smb settings, nor of any lprng settings, where I can
tell the printers (or the queues), what paper is available.
Anyone having similar problems?
