    Default Double sided printing

    My double sided printing is not working as it should, whenever i try to print something on KPDF, even though ive got duplex printing enabled everywhere, it still prints single pages.

    I made a google search but couldnt find any solution.

    thanks

    It is nothing to do with KPDF but with the printer driver that is available for your printer.

    Some manufacturers do not release enough details to enable fully compatible printer drivers to be written.

    My printer is a canon MP160 but Suse detects it as a MP150.
    So, there is nothing i can do ?? cause in canon's homepage there arent linux drivers.

    there should be some manual, always it's good idea to read it...

    but often you could install this with command as root from directory where you have downloaded files

    #rpm -ivh yourDownloadedFiles.rpm
    it could be needed to compile some...
