I use CUPS-PDF for non-LO PDF printing. Most of my printers have CUPS based drivers installed as their Linux default.

As for dialogs working properly, well duplexing works on an HP laser, while it will not on an Epson inkjet, within LO.

I use Linux mostly, but I have to compared side by side the dialogs between my Linux desktop and my Vista Laptop.

It could be LO, or it could be your flavor of Linux and its repository drivers. You never know unless you take the same printers with different version of Linux on the same computer. Or take LO on Linux vs LO on Windows. If it works for one system and not the other, then it is not LO. If the same issue is across OSs, then it is LO.

I didnt follow the thread up to now.
Do you use GNULinux CUPS?

no: drop the rest
yes: In that case its probably a problem of the .ppd and could  be solved by
modifying this filet or getting a better one from or a
gutenprint driver will do it. Have you switched off CUPS?
in my case I could (troubles with a Brother) I could solve the probelm

   Since we lease the printers I have spoken to both the engineers and the
   training department as I was
   hoping they could be set that way but these printers needs to be told to
   use the bypass - it doesn't
   select it automatically ( like small HP printers which  if you put
   something in the bypass it will take it
   from there preferentially. )

   The paper types don't just refer to the tray to take the paper from.
   They also tell the printer how fast
   to feed the paper through the machine. For example thick3 is used for
   t-shirt printing paper and that
   has to go through really slowly otherwise the toner doesn't stick.

   We have a really nasty work around for the t-shirt paper. That is, we
   put it in tray 3 and set that tray to
   thick1 ( which LO does show ) which slows the paper a bit. Then we also
   select 1200 dpi instead of
   the normal 600 which slows it even more and it works. However this does
   use up a tray and you can
   also only get away which doing 2 or 3 pages then you have to put a blank
   sheet through from a normal
   tray to clean the rollers.

   best wishes
