My home network consists of two identical Dell Dimension 4800 boxes, an HP
Officejet all-in-one 7310 printer and a Motorola cable modem. One Dell
box runs only Windows XP home, while the second box is a dual-boot Windows
XP Home and SUSE 9.1 Linux. The printer works flawlessly when running
under Windows XP on both machines.

However, when running Linux, the printer will not print dual-sided. I am
using CUPS and have defined 2 print queue, 1 queue for single-sided
printing and a second for dual-sided printing.

The OJ 7310 replaced a OJ 6110, which had the dual-side modification and
functioned correctly for both single & dual-sided printing under CUPS.

From what I have found on the WEB it appears the PPD file I am using
supports double-sided printing under Linux/CUPS.

I am not experienced in Linux and feel there is probably some simple thing
I am overlooking in either the CUPS or printer setup, however I haven't
the remotest idea about where I should start looking to find the problem.

I would really appreciate any suggestions offered which will allow me to
find and correct my problem.

Thanks

For what it's worth I'm using a 7310 with Linux (Slackware 10 in my
case) and CUPS and it prints double sided quite happily. Are you
using HPLIP for the printer drivers for the 7310?

It might be worth posting your question in the forums (spit, I hate
forums) at http://hpinkjet.sourceforge.net/.
