Duplex Options Disappeared [solved; use Gnome Manual Duplex]

Hey folks,

i'm on Arch, printing just fine with my Samsung CLP-315W (of course not Arch but the official packages).

Now, since a few days, the options for duplex printing entirely disappeared - does anyone know how to debug this?

It worked some days ago =(

MANUAL DUPLEX
-------------

    See:
        https://sourceforge.net/projects/g-manual-duplex/

        Install:
            $ make
            $ su
            # make install      -OR-    $ sudo make install

        Then using the GUI:
            1)  System -> Gnome Manual Duplex
                -OR-
            2)  Add to Panel -> Gnome Manual Duplex applet -> Add
                Print -> GnomeManualDuplex (Virtual Printer) -> Print
            
        Works with *.ps and *.pdf files.

        - Print odd pages
        - Wait for confimation message
        - Insert in the same orientation into the printer
        - Print reverse even pages

    -OR-
        $ psmandup [options] file.ps
        
        Ref:
            Fedora: # yum install a2ps
            Ubuntu: $ sudo apt-get install a2ps

    -OR-
        Print -> Page Setup -> Only print -> Odd Sheets

        then:

        Print -> Page Setup -> Only print -> Even Sheets

    -OR-
        Print -> Job -> Odd Pages

        then:

        Print -> Job -> Even Pages

Wow, thanks foy your fast reply!

I'm aware about the options you mentioned; however, up until some days ago, it was no problem to duplex-print out of the standard KDE/GTK/Acroread printing dialogs.
In all of them, the duplex printing options now are greyed out and i don't know where to start searching for the cause..

CLP-315 doesn't have auto duplex.
