Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 202520
Cannot print double sided (duplex) any more
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:40 EST
Description of problem:
In FC5/firefox 1.0.8 you had access to the print command firefox (and
thunderbird) used to print, which allowed you to add duplex options. This is
gone now, and no GUI selection of duplex is available. How do you set duplex
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm using FC6 and could not find the duplex option either.
Fortunately in CUPS you can create a "printer instance", for example:
lpoptions -p laserjet/duplex -o Duplex=DuplexNoTumble
and this solved the problem for me.
Fedora Core 5 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the
updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or
Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please
let us know in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back
from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.
Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.
Thanks in advance.
Reassigning to devel so it keeps current. This has been reported upstream in
various bugs. Workaround in comment #1 works well.
We should probably just resolve this upstream and get the bugs referenced here.
Reporter, could you please provide us with the best of those "various bugs"?
Well, this one is old but is still the case:
THis is newer, not yet triaged:
This would also make things work (Use KDE):
Thanks for the research.
