Re: Available Papers List

The installment states:

"The default (also known as system) paper can be chosen from many known
papers that are currently recognized by programs using the libpaper
library (with libpaper, paper names are case insensitive; if you use
programs that use the system paper size but do not rely on the libpaper
library, this may not be true and some of the papers listed below may
not be known by these programs): "

However, it provides nary a clue as to what papers may be chosen.  And I
already had "letter" (sans quotes) in the /etc/papersize file.

What do I do now?
