Dual-side printing on Officejet 7310 running SUSE 9.1 & CUPS

Discussion in 'HP' started by Jerry E. Miller, Feb 19, 2005.

  1. My home network consists of two identical Dell Dimension 4800 boxes, an HP
    Officejet all-in-one 7310 printer, a D-Link router and a Motorola cable
    modem. One Dell box runs only Windows XP home, while the second box is a
    dual-boot Windows XP Home and SUSE 9.1 Linux. The printer works flawlessly
    when running under Windows XP on both machines. Of the many HP printers I
    have owned, the OJ 7310 is the first to satisfy my requirements. In my
    opinion this one heck of a printer for home/small office use.

    However, when running Linux, the printer will not print dual-sided. I am
    using CUPS and have defined 2 print queues, 1 queue for single-sided
    printing and a second for dual-sided printing.

    The OJ 7310 replaced a OJ 6110, which had the dual-side modification and
    functioned correctly for both single & dual-sided printing under CUPS.

    From what I have found on the WEB it appears the PPD file I am using
    supports double-sided printing under Linux/CUPS.

    From the HP-OfficeJet_7300-hpijs.ppd file:

    I am not experienced in Linux and feel there is probably some simple thing
    I am overlooking in either the CUPS or printer setup, however I haven't
    the remotest idea about where I should start looking to find the problem.

    I would really appreciate any suggestions offered which will allow me to
    find and correct my problem.
