Thanks.  I hope to get to this later today.

I distinctly remember that when I installed hplip on this (Mandriva) laptop 
for the C7180 I also had the 4x6 problem.  I found that there were three 
places that could affect it.  I think they were CUPS setup, KPrinter setup and 
hplip setup.  Two out of three were correct.  The third said 4x6.  I'm not 
certain, but I think I had to change KPrinter defaults.  Anyway, that's the 
line to investigate.  It didn't take me too long to find it, so I'm sure you 
will find it too.
