HP Laserjet 1022 - can't print double sided

Postby fmmsf on Sun Mar 03, 2013 3:04 pm

Hey guys!
I'm running mint 14 and after successfully installing and printing single sided documents on a Hp laserjet 1022 I tried and failed to print double sided docs.

I've checked http://localhost:631/printers/ and the printer is properly installed. The driver description there states the printer can indeed print double sided but whenever I try to print something the option (in the print job menu) to print double sided is grayed-out..

Any idea what to do next? I have done some research on this but I can't seem to find a solution on my own..

Cheers,
F.

http://localhost:631/printers/
Click the queue name to get to the maintenance page. The printer defaults should list:

Code: Select all
sides=one-sided


Click the Administration dropdown and choose 'Set Default Options'. The 'Double-Sided Printing:' option should now be available. You probably want to flip on the long edge.

Hmm.. nops, not working.. I am not sure the printer is actually getting the commands: I found this screen on the job list menu.. which is kind of weird since I actually printed some docs last week..

On another CUPS menu I found this. Would this happen if CUPS were correctly installed? It's as it was out of the box. The thing I installed that I think could have messed up my set-up was the HPLIP thingy that didn't even work as it should have.. Soooo.. suggestions?

--you can try the vendor's driver support if you want a check of the printer..
http://www.driverlook.com/hp-laserjet-1 ... ows-linux/
--another site link, reference HP data !

HPlip info, maybe check version you have and read vendor's info..

--looking at their printer data, HP 1100 + linux

Would also depend on network status (connectivity), that is USB, Ethernet whichever it is or is available for that printer, that connection has to be working correctly to see the printer and give/get commands/results from such!

Some forum, problems (launchpad) issues with printing for HP 1100..

Additionally if a specific driver eg 1100 is not working well, an option is often to use another driver in the same family, sometimes the next printer model/driver version or one below the 1100, or switch to purely open source drivers (cups + openprinting..)
--Internet search open printing would get the web site and some FAQs' etc.
