I've already created a new Preset configuration, but I cannot set it as the new default settings.

Anyone has any clues on achieving this?

What happens if you set the default settings from the browser going to the address http://localhost:631?

For example, I go to http://localhost:631/printers/Canon_MX310_series and from there clicking on administration I can choose: Set Default Options. Those set there usually get respected.
