I had the same problem as the person below. Just don't do 'sudo make', but instead just do 'make' and that solved the problem for me. Thank you Gergely for this patch -- it's been a life-saver at end of dissertation crunch!

I tried also the patch with no luck :/

oli@trifid ~/Desktop/trueprint-5.3 $ patch -p1 < ../trueprint.diff


oli@trifid ~/Desktop/trueprint-5.3 $ ./configure --enable-paper-a4


oli@trifid ~/Desktop/trueprint-5.3 $ sudo make

didnt work:

creating ./config.status
cd . \
&& CONFIG_FILES=Makefile CONFIG_HEADERS= /bin/sh ./config.status
creating Makefile

I really could need that option to print on A4, any idea on realese? I didnt compile it by self, I'm using an ubuntu package.

Because no patch section, I submit this patch to here.

It is add four new option:
--paper <name>

Add little description to man page and .texi doc.

Fix some thing in the config.in file and add a new configuration option:
which change the compile time default paper size to a4 (from letter size)

--paper=xxx command line option select xxx paper for printing (e.g.: a4, letter, legal, executive ...)
--letter and --a4 are abbrevations for --paper=letter,--paper=a4
--default-paper set back the paper size to compilation or printer default
