I am wondering about the Duplexing issues with LO.

I still am running 3.4.5 64-bit DEBs install on Ubuntu. [plus a Vista laptop].

I have two printers that have a duplexer as part of the printer.

Epson Artisan 810 inkjet.
HP Laserjet 2300dn.

I have had the Epson since 3.3.2 or 3.3.3 came out. I never could get it to print out a duplex document [i.e. print on both sides of the sheet]. I always has to print/export to a PDF file and use the PDF viewer to print the document with the duplex option.

Today, I just setup a HP Laserjet 2300dn, and I just printed a document using its duplex option. It worked.

So here is my question:
Does anyone know why LO will not print out a two sided document using the Epson Artisan 810 inkjet printer, but it will print the same document out duplexed [double sided] with the HP Laserjet 2300dn?

It seems weird that duplexing will not work for one printer but it will for the other.

If I want to print out a color document, two-sided, I have to print/export it to a PDF file and then print out the PDF file using the duplex option for the Epson printer. LO's print manager [?] will not print the document 2-sided to the Epson printer, even though it shows up as one of the print options. But when printing to the "new" HP Laserjet 2300dn printer, I click on the duplex option and it works fine.

So any clues what is needed to get the Epson inkjet printer to print out a duplex sheet [a tri-fold brochure] when I go through the printer menu system and select the duplex option over the default one-sided printing?
