I saw the answers to a similar question, but the accepted answer won't take effect in a KOMA-script class.

\cfoot{\thepage\ of \pageref{LastPage}}

I am using scrartcl and lastpage. The default page numbering is just the page number itself. I want it to be currentPage / totalPages. How do I modify it?

Remember to specify the page style. This minimal example works, showing "2 of 3" etc. in the page foot:

\cfoot{\thepage\ of \pageref{LastPage}}

this time there is a page number on the upper right of each page. I only need the bottom "X of Y" numbering. How do I fix this? – Kit Oct 26 '10 at 15:34

to your preamble?

\cfoot{\thepage\ of \pageref{LastPage}} % depending on where you want the page numbers
