    You're in the soapbox here - try posting a non-ranty question in one of
    the forums that's in the "Help" section, and provide some details about
    the steps you're following, and someone should be able to help you.

    What?? No this is clearly a rant......Why Why do I have to enter a password to change paper sizes.
    I do no give a rats behind if it is purely accidentally how this has happened.
    The point is you should not need to be root to change paper sizes.
    Probably a bug report needs to be filed I suppose.
    Kernel: 4.12.14-lp150.12.7-default x86_64 bits:

    Well, make the effort and do that. Ranting doesn't get things fixed. It's a waste of energy.

    Perhaps you are doing something wrong. I have an idea what it might be,
    but I refuse to talk about it in this thread in this subforum.

    So, please do as Jim says, be nice and ask in the... perhaps the
    application forum :-)

    That would be a prudent move, it seems.
