[Mageia-discuss] Samsung Printer driver and choice of "pdf" "PostScript" in print default

I was just printing some material in "landscape" mode on my Samsung 
SCX-4200 printer and could not figure out why it would only print in 
"portrait" mode. After fiddling around with settings, I found that when 
at the printing stage, the print window will open and if I went to 
"Print->Properties->Device(tab)->Printer Language Type->" it showed 
"pdf". If I changed it to ""PostScript (Level from driver)" everything 
worked fine.

Is there a way to make the "PostScript" drive the default driver? It 
just seems that whenever I open/close a piece of editing/wordprocessing 
software, the driver goes back to "pdf".

Many thanks for any help.
