I have recently moved from opensuse 11.4 to 12.2 (new installation) and
now find that I cannot print in duplex from firefox, thunderbird, google
chrome and kate.
Printer OKI C531dn, using the oki supplied ppd file.
Duplex printing is faultless in okular, acrobat and libreoffice (once
the printer language type in libreoffice is changed from pdf to
postscript), but firefox, thunderbird, chrome and kate will not print
duplex whatever the settings in their print dialogues.
In 11.4, using the same ppd file, there was no problem with duplex
printing, using a cups 1.5.4 server.
Also, I can print in duplex from these applications in xubuntu12.04 and
Mint14, using the same ppd file. The cups version is 1.6.1 on both these
The fact that I had to change the printer language type in Libreoffice
from pdf to postscript to enable duplex printing made me wonder whether
there is something similar I have to change in the mozilla/kate/chrome
configuration, but I haven't been able to find anything similar.
If I redirect the print from the cups server on my 12.2 to a virtualbox
mint14 cups server, then duplex printing works, so it does seem
something specific to the 12.2 setup.
I'd appreciate any pointers to how I can correct this.
