Description Philip Prindeville 2006-03-02 06:57:24 UTC
Description of problem:

On printers that stack pages from last to first, having a page reversal option
would help reorder them into the desired order.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Always reproducible when printing multi-page documents on printers that stack
pages face up (and hence last-to-first).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Print a multi-page document on an OfficeJet series 6200.
Actual results:

The last page will appear on the top of the stack.

Expected results:

The first page should appear on the top of the stack.

Additional info:

The pagespec "1:-0" will print the pages in reverse order in "pstops".

The /usr/bin/foomatic-rip script probably also needs to be modified.

This is something that needs to be done at the client end.

Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2006-03-02 14:56:35 UTC
GTK+ has no part in this

Why?  If you're pooling printers, there might be several printers in the pool,
some printing face up and some printing face down.

The client might not know the physical properties of the printer.

And it should be a characteristic of the printer that is expressed in the
printer description file (which only the server would have access to anyway).

The printing support in GTK+ 2.10 has a reverse option.
