You can optionally set the default system paper size in the file
/etc/papersize. This default is used by SavaPage,
but can again be overridden in the Admin Web App. See Section 126.96.36.199, “Default Paper Size”.

/etc/papersize file is very simple:
whitespace and anything starting with “#” is ignored, and the name
of the paper is the first string found; the case in the name of the paper is
irrelevant. Commonly valid paper size values are:
For example, use this command to set the default to
sudo su -c 'echo a4 > /etc/papersize'
