Duplex (Double page) printing on a HP 5Si MX

Post by Hitosh » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00

I would like to know how to configure Linux (Red Hat 6.0) so that I can
print double-sided on a HP 5Si Mx printer.

Thanks for any help.

1. Printing on HP LaserJet 5Si MX, duplex

we have an HP LaserJet 5Si MX duplex Printer with 4 trays, DINA3 and

Here my /etc/printcap entry on my linux machine:

        :rm=<here_the_ip ;-)> :\

How can I select a special tray and how can I say ,,print this
file in duplex mode'' ?

At this time I use:

lpr -Plp1 file.ps
... this will print one side on one page (non duplex) and
uses paper from tray 1.

Any help?
