I don't have to tell you anything. I'm offering a suggestion based upon
my newly discovered issue with Ubuntu 12.04 & an Epson Workforce 635. If
you are going to get snotty about it, then you can PO... I've better
things to do with my time.

. Printing from LO now that I've resolved my issue:
File|Print|General|click printer|click 'Properties'|Paper:Duplex:On'
works for me. Previously all options to select Two-Sided/Duplex were
greyed out. YMMV with your printer.

Thunderbird, Firefox, and other packages that use the Ubuntu printer
menu all will duplex just fine for the Artisan, but LO will not.
That wasn't clear to me in the OP.

I have not tried duplexing with the Ubuntu 12.04/MATE laptop, but I
rarely use it with anything that needs printing.

This is the driver that I use with 10.04 since I needed to install it
manually, but 12.04 went after its own.

And that is the driver you select in your print setup? (it's a basic
question as some click the first/only driver and don't bother to check
to see if they are actually selecting the individually installed driver
- or select the gutenprint etc. Anyway it's worth a double check).


That is the driver that EPSON directed me to. I went through their link[s] to the place where there was a set of drivers for various Epson printers.

I know it works fine for duplexing except for LO printing.

Also Epson stated that there was no drivers to get the scanner part working.

I know that the driver that 12.04 installed for the Artisan 810 was a different driver [set], since the scanner part of the printer would not work at all with any driver I can find that works with 10.04, but works fine with the driver 12.04 installed when installing the printer to that laptop.

12.04 went and found a new driver for the networked printer automatically. 10.04 requires you to manually download and install the driver software beforehand.

Still, when Every package that can print seems to use the Ubuntu printer menu system and duplex works. Yet, LO using its own printer menu system does not. Then logic states that there is something wrong with LO's access to the printer, not the printer driver itself.

I am not the only one who has problems with duplexing within LO. It seems that only certain models of printers do not work while other do. I only have two printers that duplex. The Epson Artisan 810 does not, while the HP Laserjet 2300dn works within LO.

This has been an issue for well over a year. I got my first duplexing printer over a year ago and people were having duplex issues before that.
