System: jedit4.3pre7, jdk1.5.0\_07, RedHat kernel 2.6.9-34.0.1.ELsmp

Printer: HP LaserJet 4600dtn

Bug:
In the "Print..." dialog, under the "Appearance" tab, there are radio buttons for "One side", "Tumble", or "Duplex" printing.

When I select duplex printing, the printer properly "prints" both sides of the paper, but the back side is blank. In other words, the front side prints, the printer retracts the page, and the back side prints; but all the text is on the front side only.

Other applications \(e.g. acroread\) print duplex properly using the lpr flag "-o Duplex=DuplexNoTumble"\).

How can I find \(and fix?\) the command jedit uses to print?

Thanks,
Daniel

This should be fixed in the latest code, but I don't have access to a duplex printer. Would someone who has access to such a printer give the latest code (revision 24486 or later) test this is fixed?

Just checked with Epson XP-700: jEdit 5.4.0 doesn't prints duplex, though I've chosen this in jEtdit's print dialog.
In contrast, jEdit 5.3.0 does print duplex without problems. Therefore I checked duplex=Auto in system printer properties (Epson driver). Other options are: duplex=Off / manual.

Robert, would you be able to try again with the latest code? I think the fix for this bug is the same fix as for 4035, the print attributes were not being set correctly.

Dale, I'd like to do it. But I need a ready-to-use jedit.jar and the latest daily build is of may 31 - will wait.

Just installed daily build from 2017-06-03 and started it without existing settings directory. After invoking the print dialog, a click on preview or print button did nothing. Then quit jedit and attached activity.log.

Beside this, after changing margins in jedit print dialog I won one trial for preview and print ;-) : Now I'am able to print duplex, but it seems that only Windows printer settings (at least for duplex) are recognized.

Thanks, the activity log is useful. When you say "only Windows printer settings are recognized", do you mean you're setting duplex from somewhere other than within jEdit?

Yes, Windows provides a link to a print settings dialog for each printer. This dialog is part of the driver - in my case from Epson (see attached screen shot). As a user I see this behavior: The settings You've made this way are kind of global defaults. An application could override some of these settings whithout effecting other applications. Don't ask me about Java's part...
