Description Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2008-06-19 17:27:41 EDT
Description of problem:
it would seem that no matter what duplex options (simplex, long-edge duplex,
short edge dumplex) I set in the gnome print dialog, my Lexmark C530DN will
always print with the settings I configured in the printer (it has a web
interface for this)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cups-1.3.7-2.fc9.i386

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up printer in cups with PPD extracted from Windows driver as described at
http://openprinting.org/show_printer.cgi?recnum=Lexmark-C530DN
2. configure one kind of duplex in the printer's web interface
(http://printeraddress/cgi-bin/dynamic/config/gen/menu_finish.html)
3. print with an app that uses the gnome printer dialog (tested evince and
firefox), setting different duplex settings
  
Actual results:
printer's settings take precedence

Expected results:
gnome print dialog settings take precedence

Additional info:
I came across this while trying to print a psbook and tearing out my hair over
the printer always doing long-edge binding
Comment 3 Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2008-06-19 17:42:49 EDT
forgot to add, the printer is set up as network printer with an IPP connection
(just in case that matters)
Comment 6 Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2008-06-19 18:10:55 EDT
ah, NOTABUG, I just found out that if I take the PPD file from the Mac driver
instead of the one from the Windows driver I get the results I wanted. (for
those reading this, you will have to clean up the PPD as described at

Sorry for the false alarm.
