Print from SeaMonkey on Linux doesn't recognize duplex support for my printer

I'm running SeaMonkey 1.1.4 on Linux (CentOS 4.5, equivalent to RHEL 4.5) and
have an HP LaserJet 4si printer accessed via TCP/IP. I'm using the CUPS printing
drivers (cups version 1.1.22, which is the most current for this OS).

When I print to this printer using Adobe Acrobat Reader, I am able to specify
that the print job should use the printer's Duplex mode.

However, when I print from SeaMonkey, I'm not given the option to select
Duplex mode.

I've downloaded and installed the most current PPD driver from here:

  <http://www.linuxprinting.org/show_printer.cgi?recnum=HP-LaserJet_4Si>

I selected the postscript driver, which was recommended:

  HP_LaserJet_4Si_v2011.110.ppd

However, this made no difference.

I've looked at the contents of the driver file, and it appears to have the
Duplex option enabled.

I've gone through the CUPS documentation, and I seem to have the printer
installed and configured correctly - and as I said above, it works
properly when accessed from Acrobat.

When I run lpoptions on the printer, I see all the available options, of
which Duplex is listed (the asterisk means that None is the default):

$ lpoptions -p hp4si -l
Smoothing/Resolution Enhancement: *True False
Duplex/Duplex (Print Both Sides): *None DuplexNoTumble DuplexTumble
ManualFeed/Manual Feed: True False
....

Is there anything I can do to get SeaMonkey to recognize that the printer
supports duplex mode?

Thanks,

Just asking as a dump user, "What is duplex print mode?"

Duplex means to print on both sides of the page.

set follow up to: mozilla.general

As an example my HP Deskjet 990cse has the option of printing book style 
which means the margins are alternately set left side right side larger 
as in a book or binder, or tablet style in which the margins are the 
same on both sides.

I don't know about Linux. But on the Mac and probably with Windows on 
PC. Duplex printing is set in the print driver. And SeaMonkey, FF, or 
Thunderbird's Print command is only a Pass through it just calls a 
preset OS command, and really doesn't have anything to do with SM/TB/FF 
per se.

I don't have this problem on Windows, which is why I specifically said "Linux".
When running SeaMonkey on Linux, I am not given the duplex option.

And again, I *am* given the option when printing from Adobe Acrobat reader
(on Linux) - so I don't think it's the Linux printer driver.

Mark,
I run a HP-6110 inkjet-duplex. Long ago, I turned on the duplex 
long-side switch inside the CUPS, simply to save the hassle of turning 
it on and off all the time, but in one of my distribution installations, 
I lost the CUPS for a few days, and like-you, I could have sworn I had a 
switch in the SeaMonkey-print-window, but when I went to use it about 
six months ago, there was none there.
To prevent having to open the HP-Toolbox every-time just to enable the 
duplex, which is the main way this multifunctional-printer gets used, I 
had to once-again permanently-enable duplex in the CUPS. Not the best 
solution, but it beats having to open HP-Toolbox, CUPS, or add the 
switch every time manually to the SeaMonkey print-command. You are not 
alone. Barry.

The same problem with FireFox. What I do is set up a cups-pdf printer,
print to a pdf, and then print duplex from there.  It's a pain having to
do a 2 step process, but the advantage is that you have a pdf to refer
back to afterwards. You might try this question on the
mozilla.dev.apps.seamonkey group - as I suspect that is the only place
that you'll get a valid technical response.

I went back to SeaMonkey 1.0.2 and don't see the duplex option in the printer
dialog. Very strange.

I tried a different text editor on Linux (gedit for GNOME) and it provides
an option for Duplex. It sure seems to be specific to SeaMonkey.

Do you mean that you create a PDF file, then open that file with acrobat
and print from there? Wow. That would be a pain. It's not just large
documents that I want to print, but even e-mail messages, etc.

Someone else suggested that I edit the CUPS configuration for the printer
to enable duplex full time. That made me think that I could just create
a second printer configuration, one that defaults to print in Duplex, then
just pick the "printer" that is appropriate for the job.

I think I'll try this.

Found the bug report:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=358393

In about:config|Filter print
are several settings that look as if they can be modifed to accomodate
duplex. I don't have time to experiment today, but;

lpr ${MOZ_PRINTER_NAME:+'-P'}${MOZ_PRINTER_NAME}

looks like it will take standard lpr values. There is also a
'print_plex_name' that looks like it may be set to some value - perhaps
for duplex?

Many thanks Mark,
This is an excellent solution!
By the way, as far as I recall, all other applications offer 
duplex-switching in their print-panels, and things like LyX even 
compose, number, etcetera, pages on the fly, even better than the 
pretty-print Unix engine within SeaMonkey plug-ins.
Thanks for the grouse-suggestion of extra printer-instances, leaving 
CUPS to turn the switch on and off. That should extend to borderless 
full-bleed photograph instances. Barry

Yes, that sure sounds like the bug (as well as the dup to which it
refers).

Well, I really need the ability to select the appropriate mode as I
create the print job. However, I did find a property called "can_change_plex"
which sounded promising. Setting it to true didn't change the print dialog,
but after dismissing the print dialog, the property was set back to false.

I would have sworn that this worked on SeaMonkey/Mozilla at some point, but
it sure looks like it never did.

Thanks,

Mark,  I have previously used this portrait-setting, entered into the 
print-panel's printer-command-cell, and I am pretty-sure I remember it 
staying there, rather than editing the about:config directly. You would 
have to edit the little panel every time you needed a change. I like 
your concept of multiple printers into the same CUPS better. My printer 
is down at the moment, else I'd road-test it for you. Barry.

lpr -o two-sided-long-edge ${MOZ_PRINTER_NAME:+'-P'}${MOZ_PRINTER_NAME}

Worked & thanks much for the suggestion! Did the same (set up an added
configuration) for color photo prints as I typically have my printer set
for gray scale to save on the color ink & sometimes had to go back in
and fiddle with the settings for the top photo paper tray & ink settings
whenever I print any serious photos on my Canon MP750.

When you do a print you should get a grey popup titled "print" asking 
for some options. In the upper right area is a button marked 
"properties" in which you can add to the print command any options you 
need. You can even prefix lpr with the "mpage" command and use the 
options there to duplex and flip on whichever axis is appropriate.

Method two: define several print queues using the system-config-print 
tool, and set the driver options there. I have queue names for draft, 
high quality, color, photo paper, legal, and duplex.

Worked on RHEL3, CentOS4, and FC{2,5,6,7}, so it should work for you.

You get than when printing from SeaMonkey 1.1.4 on Linux? I don't.

When I click on the Properties button, I get a small dialog with
the following options:

Paper Size: [Letter (8.5x11 inch)                   ]
   Color: * GrayScale  O Color

As I said in another post in this thread, this is the approach I've decided
to take.

And I did c&p show that "lpr" line. No idea if it's an option or ??? 
Mine all do that, though, it's not some option I set. Hum, tried a fresh 
virgin profile to see if it's something you set?

My setting for "print.print_command" has not been changed from the default,
which is: "lpr ${MOZ_PRINTER_NAME:+'-P'}${MOZ_PRINTER_NAME}"

I just created a new profile and tried it there, and I get the same result:
No way to adjust the print command. Perhaps you have a config setting which
allows for this?


Thanks again for the help,

MacAfee Doesn't Support Seamonkey?
My wife's broadband internet (cable) service was switched from TimeWarner Road Runner to Comcast. The Computer Associates security products (firewall, antivirus, etc.) that came free with Road Runner no longer can be updated, and she's supposed to switch to the free MaCafee security products, but they only support IE and Firefox, not Seamonkey (their web site will not allow the download using Seamonkey, and I'm guessing even if I used IE to download it, they probably wouldn't protect while surfing with Seamonkey).

Printer driver doesn't support duplex or mediasource, possible?
Hi, I have the code to control the printer settings via code and devmode structure. It has worked fine on printers I have had so far. On the new one, newer, more expensive, sophisticated I cannot change these settings. It is possible to check printer capabilities by querying the printer for e.g. duplex. I got the result I cannot control duplex via this driver. {code} function PrinterSupportsDuplex: Boolean; var Device, Driver, Port: array[0..255] of Char; hDevMode: THandle; begin Printer.GetPrinter(Device, Driver, Port, hDevmode); Result := WinSpool.DeviceCapa...

Click on a link to seamonkey.exe doesn't work if SeaMonkey is running
Hello, I used to click on the browser icon in the quicklaunch bar to open a new browser window. It worked for IE and Firefox but if SeaMonkey has already been started, a click doesn't bring up another browser window. This is really annoying, especially if the browser window has been closed while downloading a big file. Then, the progress dialog window (from which you can't go to the browser/mail client etc) is still there, but you can't open the browser with a link to the seamonkey.exe as long as this window hasn't been closed. So for browsing with SeaMonkey you ...

Since I upgraded to Seamonkey 2.0 it looks like I don't any more get 'tool tips' texts when I move the mouse over links having the html attributes 'TITLE' and/or 'ALT' filled. This worked with pre 2.0 Seamonkey releases. Do I miss something or did I encounter a bug/feature?
