I have not seen anything definitive, however a Google search led me to a
SuSE list where the following thread may be of help:


Thus, you may want to look at 'man lpoptions' to consider creating a
~/.lpoptions file.

Not sure why this would be required, as gnome-print/CUPS aware
applications should be picking up the default configuration, unless they
have application specific settings, which Evo and Evince do not seem to
have from what I can tell.

One other thing to consider would be to delete and re-define your
printers, in case something got messed up there.

Beyond this, I would have to defer to others relative to what might be
happening here, including the possibility of an FC5 bug of sorts. You
might want to do a search of bugzilla.redhat.com to see if perhaps
something has been posted there that might be relevant.

Best regards,
