Bug description:
  Binary package hint: hplip

  I have problem with 'manual duplex' printing on my HP CP1514n in Ubuntu.
  In 10.04 I select the double sided print option (print long edge). Print is now simplex printing, which is wrong.
  In 10.10beta there is a new option checkbox : Duplexer installed. Because I don't have a duplexer attached to my printer, I  deselect this option. But then I cannot select double sided printing any more.
  What to do?
  I want first to print the even pages, then I want to place the printed stack (even pages) in the printer tray.
  When I at last acknowledge with the OK printer button, the printer shall print the odd pages in the correct order on the opposite side of the even pages.
  This works perfectly in Windows. Ubuntu (Linux) must have the same functionality!
  I believe a lot of people have the same problem!
