Tony, I have two brother laser printers HL2030 and HL3150CDW and have no problems printing double sided in both windows (win 7) and Linux (manjaro). I find its just a question of setting the print up in "printer properties" for either manual (HL2030) or automatic (HL3150CDW) printing. In Linux I set up my printer defaults in CUPS. I never have to convert documents to pdf just to print them. You don't tell us what operating system you are using, what printer or what version of Libreoffice you have. Perhaps if you came back to us with a bit more information someone here would be able to give you more specific advice.


When I had problems with this using Ubuntu and an Epson printer, I had to wait till the OS updated the drivers, CUPS and others, to fet double sided printing and even scanning to work.

For Linux, it could be the driver. If it happens with Windows, then it is the way it is setup in the printer driver options - like using Postscript level 3 instead of PDF as the default.
