Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:04 EST
Description of problem:
Duplex printing does not work on HP Lasterjet 2300 using the latest upgrade of
foomatic for FC3. The original version works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
do not work: foomatic-3.0.2-13.3.i386.rpm
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start system-config-printer-gui
2. Select the printer (laserjet 2300)
3. Select menu "Test->Duplex test"
2 pages printed
1 page printed with text on both sides, aka duplex printing :-)
The printer is configured to use postscript 3.

Does this solve the problem?
The same here for an HP 4200dtn, duplex printing is not working. The duplex test
prints two pages instead of one. If works if I reinstall the original foomatic
version that came with the FC3 release.
# rpm -q foomatic
The changed Postscript.xml file does not cure the problem for me.
I forgot to mention: after copying the file, please rebuild the queues using
this command as root:
Does the problem still persist?
Copying the file and calling the rebuild fixes the problem. Thanks!
That solved it for me as well. Great!
