Epson WP4530 duplex printing problem

Post by Onehand » Thu Dec 24, 2015 3:40 pm

My Epson reverts to manual duplex when used with some software, even though all of the settings are "Duplex / Auto". Is there a way to override this on the affected programs?

Hello,

from which software did you encounter this problem?

Please also send information on your Linux distribution & version.

Sorry, I mean which application software (e.g. "LibreOffice"´, "Firefox").

You should check if manual duplexing is activated as a default option. Please open a "Terminal" window and enter

lpoptions -p <printername>

(replace <printername> with the queue short nam as shown in TurboPrint Control, column "short").
If the output contains "zedoDuplexadvanced=manual" (or "manual-reverse"), enter

lpoptions -p <printername> -r zedoDuplexadvanced
