Hi,

I have a strange question. I have an manual for children as .pdf file and I got laser printer which works fine with Gentoo.

My question is:
How to print this .pdf on both sides of a sheet of paper?
I could print every thing on one side of the paper, but I would like to print it on bots sides - eg. on firsta piece of paper pages 1 and 2 (on other side), the 3 and 4 (on other side). is it possible? Or maybe I have to print it manually > one page, then put this page back to the printer on the other side, etc...

First question is, your printer is Duplex printing compliant?
If not usually in print option you can print only even or odd page

With laser printers that are not intended to print duplex you have to be careful. I once damaged the print drum of a laser printer by printing one side of the paper and then turning it over and printing on the other side. So first double-check in the user manual -- or with the manufacturer -- whether the machine can print double-sided pages.

Hi,

Thank you for both answers. This is not duplex printer, but I couldn't find those even odd settings... But I found it :)
