I went to the CUPS setup page for my printer and was given no duplex
option.  However, OOoffice uses CUPS and will duplex.  If you see my
subsequent post, you will see I am (also) having problems just getting
gedit to print (duplex or no).

I have carefully gone through gedit preferences and gconf.  There does
not seem to be anything to change.  The printer is listed correctly etc.
Gedit does, in fact, give me the duplex option which I suspect it
wouldn't if it wasn't available, but nonetheless nothing prints.

I hate to say this but I feel like I am operating in a WindowsXP
environment where "daddy knows best" and I am given no configuration or
tweaking room.

Frustratingly, I don't know where to start.

Regards Bill
