Duplex printing

Post by donaldt » Fri Nov 09, 2012 9:39 pm

I have turboPrint 2.0 printing on Linux 12.04 wirelessly and with air print.

Using TurboPrint on my Acer portable I am only able to get manual duplex printing. If I switch over to my Apple IPad or IPhone, the printer does automatic duplex printing as advertised. Starts from the last page, waits to dry the ink, sucks the paper back in and flawlessly prints both sides of 40+ page documents.

How do I get the option to do the same with Linux under the TurboPrint Control or Monitor programs?? Why do I have to manuall feed the pages back through a second time.

Can you help me to set the program up to perform like the Air Print does?

Hello,

is this with your Canon MX 512 printer? It seems the "Auto Duplex" option hasn't been enabled in this driver. We will add this feature in the next TurboPrint release.

Thank you. That certainly explains why it only offers manual printing. Manual is pretty archaic...I'll look forward to the next update. Do you have an estimate when it might be available?

The next release will be available in about 4 weeks.
