Hi,

I'm using Gentoo amd64 with Xfce4. I have a HP LaserJet P1102 printer.

As quoted from https://askubuntu.com/questions/798460/duplex-printing-by-hp1108-using-hplip

Quote:
You'll need to install proprietary hp plugin with hp-plugin to use some of the advanced options, e.g. duplex printing.

Once the binary plugin installed as described on hplip page, Printers > HP_Color_LaserJet_MFP_M477fdw > Properties > Installed Options will show new "Duplex Unit" option with a checkbox. Under Properties > Printer Options > Two-Sided now allows to select "Long-Edge Binding".



How do I enable duplex printing on Gentoo amd 64 with Xfce4?

My printer is HP Officejet Pro 8600. It is used by every computer on this LAN. Most are not Gentoo.
My router which runs Gentoo can print double-sided to the printer.

On Arch from Settings -> Devices -> Printers I Unlocked the printer. Then I clicked on the round
gear like icon and selected Printer Options. Then under Installable Options I enabled Duplexer Installed.
Then under Page Setup beside Two-sided I selected Long Edge (Standard) from the drop down menu.
Then I clicked on Test Page in the top right on that printer dialog box and got a test page on both sides
of a piece of paper.

In Gentoo on router I installed net-print/cups and net-print/hplip. Then I setup the printer as root with:
Code:
lpadmin -p HP_Officejet_Pro_8600 -E -v socket://192.168.100.44 -m drv:///hp/hpcups.drv/hp-officejet_pro_8600.ppd

You can use this guide https://www.cups.org/doc/admin.html#MODELS

Next I selected a file that would be more than one page and printed it as normal user mingdao with:
Code:
lp -d HP_Officejet_Pro_8600 -o sides=two-sided-long-edge resume.pdf

and it printed on two sides.

Considering that the printer does not auto duplex (manual duplexing only according to the tech specs), the option, if you get it to show, won't work.

Manual duplexing = print even pages, reload printed paper, print odd pages

Edit: specs https://support.hp.com/ca-en/document/c01999607 see under printing specifications

I know that (first printing odd pages then reverse the papers and print the even pages), but the programs like Libre Office and xpdf don't show option for printing odd or even pages (I have to type the pages manually by number) which might be suitable just for few-pages-only documents, and not for documents with a lot of pages.

(Other thing beside Libre Office and xpdf is that I like LaTex and TexStudio which I don't use much).
