Subject Re: PCL duplex
Date Fri, 08 Oct 2010 11:55:12 GMT
FOP uses the &lnS command to enable duplex mode. But that may not be the
right command for all printers.

If you post the exact model name of the two printers, I'll download the
tech manuals and take a look. Maybe they need some special command to
actually do duplex.

You could also generate two simple duplex documents with the printers'
drivers and send them to me. That might allow me to reverse engineer the
required commands.
