Duplex in FreeBSD 8.3 with LPD
Posted by: maps ()

First of all, thank you for sharing with us your driver

I probe the duplex option printing a document that has 3 pages

foo2zjs-d2 <pbm.file> / dev/ulpt0

But left the 3 pages printed on one side, the second page came rotated 180 °

I expected to come out odd pages then the even pages (with a pause o something)

What does foo2zjs makes when activating the duplex option (-d2)?

Duplex is for a printer that actually has a automatic duplex feature, like the Magicolor 2300 DL. HP 1018 doesn't have an auto-duplex unit.

From the INSTALL file:


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

        Then using the GUI:
            1)  System -> Gnome Manual Duplex
            2)  Add to Panel -> Gnome Manual Duplex applet -> Add
                    ...Do it at least once, then...
                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

        Howto (video):

        $ psmandup [options] file.ps

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

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


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

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


        Print -> Job -> Even Pages

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


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