Duplex Printing (Long Side) not working with LaserJet P1505 (HPLIP v3.9.10)

Asked by Nico on 2009-11-05

Hi, there's a similar bug reported, but with an older version of HPLIP. This bug is related to the last version of HPLIP available to date (3.9.10 05/Nov/2009) and with another printer, the HP Laserjet P1505.

In summary, it's like the option of Duplex Printing (Long Side) is not considered at all. All pages go in one row, like simple printing.

Output of "hp-check -t" as asked before submitting the bug:
[Thanks in advance]

This is free software, and you are welcome to distribute it

Note: hp-check can be run in three modes:
1. Compile-time check mode (-c or --compile): Use this mode before compiling the HPLIP
supplied tarball (.tar.gz or .run) to determine if the proper dependencies are
installed to successfully compile HPLIP.
2. Run-time check mode (-r or --run): Use this mode to determine if a distro supplied
package (.deb, .rpm, etc) or an already built HPLIP supplied tarball has the proper
dependencies installed to successfully run.
3. Both compile- and run-time check mode (-b or --both) (Default): This mode will check
both of the above cases (both compile- and run-time dependencies).
