Hi,
I've installed my printer, a Samsung ML-2851ND using Samsung's official driver, downloaded by their site. I'm using ethernet interface to print. In printer's control center (access by http://printer-ip/ ) i have setted duplex option.
In kde settings, duplex is enabled.

But when i print, duplex is not working! (also in other systems, like ubuntu).

But 2 years ago, i was able to print duplex with this printer, without any problem. I don't know why it doens't work anymore....


I posted logs:

Hi.

the keyword is cups.

when cups is proper set up, than it should work.

there was something like http://Localhost:631 what i rememeber to access the cups interface as root

First set up cups correctly, print the test pages and install the provided gnu linux drivers from your manufactuerer.

if those do not work you have to stick to pcl or one of the other emulations but you will loose functionality.

most of the extra features are provided by that ppd? file provided by your manufacturer.

there should be somewhere a cups howto around, check e.g. gentoo wiki / google.

I forget to say, but i tryed also configuring CUPS.

Now i delete my 2 printer (someone says me that samsung drivers, when installing more than one printer, have a problems.... i had 2 printer installed, so i delete both. And now i installed only one printer (2851ND, that gives me problems)).

After that, i download from Samsung site the UnifiedLinuxDriver. I don't run installing bash script, i extract from package the ppd (ML-2850ps.ppd) and, from web interface of cups, add new printer. I use the ppd downloaded, and enable 2-side print.

Try to test a test page, but same problem... duplex doesn't work.

Here a summarize of cups:

Quote:

Description: Samsung ML-2851ND
Location:
Driver: Samsung ML-2850 Series PS (grayscale, 2-sided printing)
Connection: socket://192.168.1.100
Defaults: job-sheets=none, none media=iso_a4_210x297mm sides=two-sided-long-edge



PS: on windows, duplex is working. So is not a printer problem...

This is a PostScript printer. It is not necessary to install Samsung software, unless you need SmartPanel etc.

Regarding the duplex printing, I suggest to install net-print/foomatic-db-ppds and choose Samsung ML-2851ND Foomatic/Postscript as cups driver. Make sure that the duplexer is set to installed if there is such a setting.

ok, i installed net-print/foomatic-db-ppds, so i add a new printer in CUPS (localhost:631) but when it ask me the ppd, in the list of samsung printers, there's no ML-2851 printer. Only ML-2853 and ML-2855.

I tried to use ppd from http://www.openprinting.org/printer/Samsung/Samsung-ML-2851ND but duplex printing doesn't work.
