I'm using Linux, Debian 7amd64, kernel 3.2.63, hplip 3.14.1 with an
HP OfficeJet Pro 8100.
CUPS is installed, v1.5.3and LibreOffice 126.96.36.199.
I have two CUPS printer configs for that printer, one for normal
printing and one for duplex.
If I try to pick the obvious settings through LO for printing, which
I figured would be
'Long Edge (standard) for the 'duplex' setting, then it doesn't work.
a posting that indicated that the LO 'file/print/properties'
selection should use <ignore> for
the duplex settingand that actually appears to work but it's still a
problem that no
printer settings entered through LO are saved. I should be able to
pick my printer
(hp8100duplex) and print double sided without needing to make that
choice each time.
A small extra step, but irritating.
But here is an interesting observation. CUPS shows the printers
configured with hplip 3.13.11
but the hplip device manager version is3.14.1 . More investigation is
I'm open to suggestions.
I have an HP Officejet pro 8600, which I believe uses the same driver,
on Opensuse 13.1, LO 4.3.5.
In the File-Print-General Tab, click on the Properties of your
printer, and then on the Device Tab.
The Default Printer language Type is set to PDF, but I find this
causes me problems with any other printing besides single sided
portrait. Switch it to postscript and try that. Postscript always
gives me better results than PDF language type with this printer.
If it's any consolation to anyone, OpenOffice operates the same way.

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.
I've looked but haven't been able to find the right combination of
enable double sided printing and keep the configuration.
Has there been any movement in the repair of this feature or are we
stuck with converting our documents to another format (.pdf) for
