Same setup here.

What I discovered... The command line option was missing, and there was
no "Letter" for papersize - I was using "a(215x279)", which apparently
does not correspond to 8.5x11 and was causing the stretched-out

What I never bothered to look at was using Postscript/lp instead of
lp@:64. When I did, there was a command line box and "Letter"...  :-)
I put "kprinter" in the command line.

It now prints quite well, and I can obtain PDF files too. The only
puzzle remaining is how to make Postscript/lp the default, instead
of lp@:64 ..

Thanks, you guys! :-)
