           Summary: [Breezy] Printer stuck in double-sided; test page wrong
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: gnome-cups-manager
        AssignedTo: martin.pitt at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: H.A.J.Koster at xs4all.nl
         QAContact: desktop-bugs at lists.ubuntu.com

Setup: HP DeskJet 5850 network printer, configured via Administration/Printing
menu, using HP-DeskJet_5850-hpijs.ppd driver,
with A4 paper/region size, double sided off, and further default settings.

Symptoms: (1) Ubuntu test page is moved 2.5 cm (1 inch) up, clipping the Ubuntu
banner -- this page is printed in single-sided mode; (2) When printing a PDF
file (produced with pdfLaTeX), the page layout is OK, but now the printer is
suddenly stuck in double-sided mode.

Notes: (1) This happens on two different computers, an old A22e ThinkPad and a
newer Dell Dimension 4600i, using the official Breezy release. (2) Previously, I
used Debian Sarge on both computers, with identical setup via
http://localhost:631 -- the standard CUPS test page printed OK, and no problems
with double/single sided mode.
