KDE print dialogue options do not show correct setting for duplex printing
Last modified: 2010-10-07 12:09:08 EDT
Description of problem:
KDE print dialogue options do not show correct setting for duplex printing based on cups system defaults
For example, in kmail, if I want to print a mail message the print dialogue Options/Options(tab) shows Duplex printing None selected despite the default being Long-Edge Binding as seen in Properties/Advanced(tab). it does actually print duplex though.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open an email in kmail
2. select file/print
Options/Options(tab) shows Duplex Printing None
Options/Options(tab) shows Duplex Printing Long side
Affects many kde applications eg kate, kaddressbook etc
I guess there is a better component to log this against, but its not obvious to me which one.
As this also affects other apps, I'd suspect kdelibs. But it might also be a Qt issue as the KDE 4 print dialog is based on the Qt one.
