Duplex printing [solved: read INSTALL file]
Posted by: nefastvs ()

After installing the drivers for this printer, I still cannot assign a job to print jobs in duplex format (front and back). Is there a way to enable that option?

From the INSTALL file (you read it, right):

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

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

        Install:
            $ make
            $ su
            # make install      -OR-    $ sudo make install
            [logout]
            [login]

        Then:
            Using the Gnome 2 or Gnome-3 Classic (fallback) GUI:
            1a)     System Tools -> Gnome Manual Duplex
                    - OR -
            1b)     Add to Panel -> Gnome Manual Duplex applet -> Add
            2)      Print -> GnomeManualDuplex (Virtual Printer) -> Print

            Using the Gnome 3 Shell GUI:
            1)      $ gnome-session-properties
                    Startup Programs -> GnomeManualDuplex -> Enable
                    [logout][login]
            2)      Print -> GnomeManualDuplex (Virtual Printer) -> Print

            Works with *.ps and *.pdf files.
            Works with Gnome-2 or Gnome-3.

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

        Howto (video):
            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4Ghomz6RQI

    -OR-
        $ psmandup [options] file.ps

        Ref:
            Fedora: # yum install a2ps
            Ubuntu: $ sudo apt-get install a2ps

    -OR- (Gnome)
        Print -> Page Setup -> Only print -> Odd Sheets

        then:

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

    -OR- (Gnome)
        Print -> Job -> Odd Pages

        then:

        Print -> Job -> Even Pages

    -OR- (KDE)
        Okular -> Print -> Copies -> Page Set -> Odd Pages

        then:

        Okular -> Print -> Copies -> Page Set -> Even Pages
