Description of problem:
With a printer configured to use the HP LaserJet 8150 Postscript driver,
changes made to the "Double-Sided Printing" option on the Driver Options tab
don't get saved. Specifically, it insists on being set to "On". The Paper Size
option works normally. I haven't experimented with the other options, or with
other printer types.
May or may not be related:
I was very surprised to see that the Page Size option apparently defaulted to
A4. If I wasn't in the US, I'd probably be less surprised...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a printer, as an HP LaserJet 8150, Postscript.
2. Select that printer and click Edit.
3. Click the Driver Options tab.
4. Change Double-Sided Printing from On to Off.
5. Click OK.
6. Click Edit again.
7. Click the Driver Options tab again.
8. Observe that Double-Sided Printing is set to On.
9. Repeat until convinced that it's not pilot error.
Actual Results: In step 8 I observed that Double-Sided Printing was set to On.
Expected Results: It should have been set to Off.
Reported upstream as:
Fixed package is foomatic-2.0.2-18.
