    Default Double-sided printing problem with Oki B410d

    I'm new to opensuse, recently migrated from ubuntu.
    Just configured a new printer, an Oki B410d and have a problem with the automatic double-sided printing: it will only print with the "long-edge flip", no matter if I mark the "short-edge" option. This is very annoying, since I have to print lots of booklets on horizontal A4 paper, and reverse pages are printed upside-down!
    I'm using the "OKI B4000 / B400 / MB400 PCL" driver from Okidata web page.
    Will appreciate any help. Thanks.

    Thanks, but that didn't fix my problem.
    Any ideas?

    I even though it was a faulty machine, but I tested it in XP and it worked fine.

    Check the file /etc/cups/ppd/<printer_name>.ppd. I had to manually edit it to
    get my printer to "tumble". The lines in question were

    *FoomaticRIPOptionSetting Duplex=DuplexNoTumble: " -dDuplex=true -dTum&&
    ble=false"
    *End
    *FoomaticRIPOptionSetting Duplex=DuplexTumble: " -dDuplex=true -dTumbl&&
    e=true"
    *End

    The default was set earlier in the file to DuplexNoTumble, which is overridden here.

    Problem solved. I changed to the pxlmono driver, updated ghostscript, and now it's working!
    Thanks a lot caf4926 and lwfinger for your answers!
