    Default printer ignoring duplex settings

    opensuse 11.1 64 bit kde 4.2.X

    okular, openoffice (and probably other applications) ignore the dubplex notumble settings in the driver options. If I print from Adobe Acroread the duplex notumble settings are honoured

    this is mega frustrating. I have general low, level frustration with opensuse 11.1 but this seems indefensible. why can the printer server not honour the printer settings!

    No doubt you will tell me that its a user error or that acroread uses a work around, to avoid this problem but that you are morally above workarounds....

    I have been with opensuse for about 5 years now, but its now negatively influencing my productivity.

    Have you tried using konqeror or a browser pointed at localhost:631 to
    control CUPS?

    Depending on the printer, it may be that the drivers have not been provided by the manufacturer and the developers may not have the information to implement these options.

    On the other hand that should become visible. Also note that some
    apps work and some do not. RTFP
