Description of problem:
I'm using a Xerox Workcentre pro 423.
There is no .ppd for this printer, so i'm stick with a generic/PCL.
when duplex printing, if using ljet4d driver, it always flips on long edge, even when short edge is chosen.
hpijs driver flips correctly on both long and short but is much slower than ljet4d for this printer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.set duplex = shortedge (tumble) in driver config, or via kprinter etc...
2.print a multipage document
3.results are frustatingly duplex longedge
Actual Results: results are frustatingly duplex longedge
Expected Results: duplex shortedge
I managed to find a .ppd for this printer, but it is for the PS version that you can get adding a module in the printer (I don't have that)
I experimented with it by changing foomaticRipCommand. same behaviour.

Does this solve the problem?
Well, I don't think it will, maybe I wasn't clear enough in my post: my printer
is not PS, it is a PCL. it CAN be turned into a PS by adding a hw module (quite
expensive), which I don't have.
When I was talking about the ppd, the file I've found is only for the PS version
of the printer, so I added a foomaticRipCommandLine filter via ljet4d (or hpijs
in it) in it, see attached.
I ofcourse experimented with plain ljet4d and hpijs drivers before doing that...

homemade ppd for PStoPCL on Xerox Workcentre Pro 423
Just the original PPD for PS version of Xerox Workcentre Pro 423, with only
foomaticRIPCommandLine via ljet4d added
Sorry about asking you to try the fixed Postscript.xml file -- if I'd read more
carefully I would have seen that you don't have PS hardware.
Okay, it looks like the ljet4d driver just doesn't support the Tumble parameter.
This looks like a foomatic bug, since it seems to think that ljet4d does
support this parameter.
