Hi :)
2 approaches to fix this, i've not thought about which should be number 1 

1.  To use the LO dialogues ...  When the printer dialogue-box pops-up note there are 4 tabs at the 
top.  On the 1st tab you should see a list of all the printers installed.  Select the Hp 960 but 
instead of printing click on the "Properties" button.  It's just under the list.  The "Properties" 
pop-up also has a couple of tabs.  The 1st should be "Paper".  Duplex is about the 4h drop-down.  
Long-edge for Portrait but Short-edge for landscape.  My boss can never figure out that short-edge 
refers to the shortest edge of the paper, or perhaps he is just being kind.  

2.  To change to normal dialogues ... 
LibreOffice - Preferences - General - "Print dialogues" - UNtick the tick-box that says "Use LO 

Errr, are you sure that duplex is installed?  When you install the driver it should ask you if you 
want duplex to be included.  It might do it automatically.  
Regards from 
Tom :)

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Printing with HP 960C Deskjet

Fellow LibreOffice users - 

I am running LO on a Mac, OSx 10.7.5 and the printer is a HP 960C Deskjet.
There are no native OSx drivers for the 960C so I've loaded drivers from
Guten Print, Hpijs and also an HP 9800. All three work fine with every OSx
app including OpenOffice 3.4.1. In LO the print dialog does not use the
normal OSx dialog that every other app uses, but has its own. That dialog
does not allow me to select Dual sided printing or Print Quality other than
Draft, among other missing, but not so important settings. Is there any way
around this? Why does LO do its own thing and not use the normal dialogs? I
have to have OpenOffice installed just to print properly. Very wasteful of
time and resources. 

LO has fixed a number of things that are not fixed in OO so I'd much rather
use LO all the way, except for this one issue. 

Thanks for any help.
