Writer ignores settings for printing in duplex mode + page flipping, the printer always prints on single pages instead of doublesided.
1. Create a document with A4 Landscape page format
2. Enter some text, a pagebreaks and another text to get 2 pages
3. Hit Ctrl P for printing
4. and change Prpperties of printer to Duplex and to long edge or short edge
5. Print page
6. Printer only prints single sided
HP Officejet is set as standard printer.
Duplex tray is shown as installed in CUPS, HPLIP GUI and KDEs systemssettings of printer.
Linux Debian 7.7 Wheezy
ppd: HP Officejet Pro 8100, hpcups 3.14.10
LibreOffice 22.214.171.124 bc356b2f991740509f321d70e4512a6a54c5f243 (german)
Other programs work fine with double side printing and page flipping.
Seems to be a regression because it exists in 4.2.x relase, too!
Hi @GwenDragon, thanks for reporting.
Please take a look to this threads:
@m.a.riosv Thanks, but your tips are not the solution and dont work with current versions of LO.
There is the same problem with openSUSE 13.1 and 13.2., the same printer, and LO version 126.96.36.199 and former versions.
I found the following workaround:
You need to use the option <ignore> for "Duplex" within the printer dialogue.
Then LO files are printed duplex.
Setting to NEW due to comment 4.

Adding Whiteboard:bibisectRequest to this, although it may be hard to find someone willing to bibisect who has a suitable printer...
Really this is the same problem as bug 60428. I will update the description to make clear that it covers several flavours of OfficeJet
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 60428 ***
Migrating Whiteboard tags to Keywords: (bibisectRequest)
This bug is resolved!
