First, my printer is configured to print on both

It does not do so now.
What is "my printer"?
The printer I use as system default, the only printer defined locally.
BTW, it's a HP LaserJet 4200dtn, accessed via network.
Whether or not it prints duplex usually depends on the driver.
I cannot imagine how a change of the base printing system
changes what the driver does.
I did not change the printers PPD in /etc/cups/ppd nor did I change
Is it perhaps that the duplex setting in your case is
in the old ~/.cupsrc or ~/.lpoptions files?
Will CUPS show (grayscale, 2-sided printing) to me in this case?
Since CUPS 1.5 the ~/.cups/client.conf and
files that were introduced in CUPS 1.2 must now be used.
Since I don't have ~/.cupsrc or ~/.lpoptions, I don't think I have to
move individual settings. ~/.cups/lpoptions exists (date: 28. Apr 16:24)
and contains one line:
When trying to
look at the printer's config via https://localhost:631
I can click on the printer and see the printer page ...
But whatever action I chose in any of the select boxes, nothing happened.
For me it works (i.e. I cannot reproduce it).
That's OK, it might be a Firefox problem, as I said in Message-id:
<4E8EBC84.1000908(a)ufz.de>de>. It works fine with Opera, too.
But there have always been reports that in this or
that particular case
there are issues with the CUPS web interface.
Yes *sigh*, I remember. Whenever any colleague tried to change the PPD
file of any printer (last step in "modify printer"), Firefox built an
endless loop. With Internet Exploder or Opera, everything went fine.
In some cases the root cause was that an old
with an outdated "DocumentRoot" entry from an old CUPS installation
is still there.
No chance here ;-)
