View Full Version : Odd/even pages printing with printer-applet

Using F10.

I noticed that I no longer am able to choose odd or even pages to print when using kdeutils-printer-applet (from okular or another kde app).

This is unfortunate, since the duplex printing option doesn't seem to work if the printer is not able to print both sides of the sheet automatically. In this case when I wanted duplex printing I simply chose to print the odd (or even) sides first and then the opposite sides. However, with the present version of the printer-applet, I can find no way to accomplish this...

Has anyone else had the same problem? Does anyone know a workaround?

Thank you.

There are still some bugs with Qt's and KDE4 print system and settings :-(

I try to use kprinter (from kde 3.5) as much as possible, especially for duplex printer.

That's a good tip. How do I configure kde 4.x apps to use kprinter?
