Hallo, the actual AR-9.1.2 security update for linux has any bugs in print dialog:
Page Scaling as booklet printing prints only simplex
Is there any workaround with the security update for the above-named features, they are very nessecary for us
with best regards Matthias
These are two known issues with AR 9.1.2.
As a workaround you can use the Custom printing route to achieve the two functionalities:
Choose Custom in the Printer Name dropdown and edit the command line field with the following commands in different scenarios.
I have specified commands for both lp and lpr. You can use either of the two.
1) copies > 1 are without effect
To achieve Copies, use the following command in the Custom printing.
lp -d <Printer Name> -n 2
lpr -P <Printer Name> -# 2
lp -d <Printer Name> -n 2 -o Collate=true
lpr -P <Printer Name> -# 2 -o Collate=true
2) Page Scaling as booklet printing prints only simplex
To achieve Duplex in different scenarios of Booklet, use the following command in the Custom printing.
lp -d <Printer Name> -o Duplex=DuplexTumble -o Duplex=DuplexTumble
lpr -P <Printer Name> -o Duplex=DuplexTumble -o Duplex=DuplexTumble
lp -d <Printer Name> -o Duplex=DuplexNoTumble -o Duplex=DuplexNoTumble
lpr -P <Printer Name> -o Duplex=DuplexNoTumble -o Duplex=DuplexNoTumble
Make sure to substitute <Printer Name> in the command line with the actual printer name you want to print to.
For example if the printer name is HPLJ8150:
lpr –P HPLJ8150 -# 2
Hi Rishi, best thanks for the answer. If these are known issues then I must wait for the next fixed realease, because for printing in our public scool fee is required. Usage of lp commands is good for scripts but not for GUI's.
