I have a weird problem in KDE's printing dialog:
My printer is shared via a printserver using CUPS and Avahi and I have
verified that Avahi announces the printer capabilities as Duplex True.
klaus at msien:~> avahi-browse -c _ipp._tcp --resolve | grep -i duplex
txt = ["printer-type=0x901E" "Duplex=T" "Color=T" ...
Firefox and LibreOffice picks up this, and I can select Duplex Long or
Short edge as expected. But trying to print from Konqueror or Okular any
duplex option is grayed out and selection is stuck on Off.
However: If I open the Firefox printing dialog, select Long edge and
press Cancel, then immediately enter the print dialog in Okular (or
Konqueror), I can now select Long or Short edge print (and it the
printer does duplex as requested)
I am runnning KDE Frameworks Version 5.105.0, Qt Version 5.15.9 (built
against 5.15.9), cups-2.4.2 on OpenSUSE Tumbleweed.
Where do you think this bug should be filed? OpenSUSE, KDE, or maybee CUPS.
