Sorry for the gratuitous trimming.... Just wanted to share my experience which probably
doesn't fix your situation but may trigger others to think what may.....
I had much the opposite situation. I have an HP 6500 with duplex capability. It is
configured in CUPS as "installed" and the default is set to " Double-Sided
Printing: off". Yet every time I printed I would get double-sided print-outs. In
checking the print options for each application I was using the Double-sided option was
selected. In order to get single-sided, I always had to manually revert it within all of
Ultimately, I ran "hp-toolbox" (which isn't applicable to you) and set the
default there.... After that, each application did pick up the default single sided. So,
it seems, settings are held in multiple places and I'm not certain where all the
places are and which location has priority.....
Anyway..... Just wondering, when you print from an application, if you checked to see
what printer options are being used.
FWIW, this got to me thinking and I found where the per-user options are set.....
Duplex=DuplexNoTumble is set for a printer where the default should be
Double-sided printing: Long Edge
Do not condemn the judgment of another because it differs from your own. You may both be
