Two Sided Printing Fails
I have an HP Deskjet 6940 that supports a manual 2 sided printing mode that works well in Windows XP but fails in Ubuntu 9.04.
Documents print normally when one sided printing (the default) is selected. However, when I select 2-sided printing, the first page prints about 2/3 of the way and a print failed pop-up appears and the printer freezes with its power light blinking.
When I press the trobuleshoot button in the pop-up it reveals that /usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed.
When I clicked the button to activate additional debugging in CUPS, the print job froze, as before, but this time no pop-up, namely no message at all!
A power cycle of the printer is required to get it working again.
Anybody have two-sided printing working?
