No automatic duplex print using Canon Pixma MP640

Post by hanska32 » Mon Nov 29, 2010 3:10 pm

I print nicely full (auto) duplex in windows 7 on the MP640. However, Turboprint 2.17 doesn't print full duplex in Ubuntu 10.10 64b although duplex mode is set to auto. How come?

Hello,

please check the following:

- is Duplex mode selected in the application's print dialog (e.g. OpenOffice print dialog -> "Properties" -> "Duplex")?

- does TurboPrint Monitor show that duplex mode is activated when the print job is processed (middle columnt -> "Settings" -> "Duplex=...")?

I printed from the Ubuntu Firefox browser and here is no option to set duplex printing. Using OO Writer as you suggested printed OK in duplex mode. So I was a little premature on your product. Anyway, thank you for the quick replay.
