Re: [opensuse-packaging] cups: upgrade from 1.4.x to version 1.5.0

First, my printer is configured to print on both sides of the paper.
It does not do so now.

The printer I use as system default, the only printer defined locally.
BTW, it's a HP LaserJet 4200dtn, accessed via network.

What is the output of a command like

lpoptions -p <queue_name> -l | grep -i duplex

You may run "lpoptions -p <queue_name> -l" and extract those lines
which seem to be of interest regarding "print on both sides".

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.

For the "fun" an issue where it is the other way round:

There is a change regarding the CUPS web interface to make it
work better in particular for Epiphany and Internet Explorer:
... seems to work ok with Firefox3
... with epiphany (webkit), it hangs forever
... differently than Safari
... Same error happens in chrome
... issue on webkit-based browser (epiphany, chromium...)
... where on firefox or seamonkey it works fine
... neither IE 7 nor IE 8 seem to be able to handle it
... still a problem ... with IE8

Those browser-dependant issues with the CUPS web interface
often depend not only on the browser and the browser version,
but additionally on whatever specific settings for the browser
which a particular user may have set.

Regarding browser-dependant issues with the CUPS web interface
it would be best to report such issues directly to upstream via
so that there is a direct communication between the user who has
such an issue with his particular browser and the upstream authors.
