Fix any printer's default A4 paper margins

I think there's one step missing: between 3 and 4 should be:

3.5: Type:
pico PaperInfo.xml
... or any other editor of your choice, but then the shortcuts will be different!

actually,

sudo pico PaperInfo.xml

and then enter your admin password

You need to be root to be able to modify the file...

Well, if you've already made the backup copy via sudo, you actually shouldn't be asked for the password a second time (in the same terminal "session")... ;-)

Anyway, great hint!!!

It was there, actually it should be
3. sudo pico PaperInfo.xml

I added a 2.1 to do a backup. Somehow it must have been removed accidently. Very important line.
