View Full Version : [ubuntu] cups won't set duplexing on

April 18th, 2010, 03:55 AM
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 beta2. The printer is a Dell 2130cn color laser with a duplexor.

I can define the printer with [system][administration][printing]. I defined it using +network printer, then it found "Dell 2130cn Color Laser (ip address). No driver was found.

First I used 'Generic', and Generic PCL 6/PCL XL Printer Foomatic/pxlcolor [en].

When I use 'Job Options' Sides: and select "Two-sided (long edge)" and click "Apply", the Sides: value changes back to "One-sided".

I tried copying a .ppd file from a fedora core12 system that works correctly, it makes no difference.

I have also done an apt-get update and apt-get upgrade. Still doesn't work. Color selection works fine, but no duplexor.

Help will be appreciated!
