Printing multiple pages per page

Hi all,

When using kde in debian before switching to Ubuntu I was able to
print (via cups) multiple pages on a single page.  I.e. I could print
two portrait pages at 2perPage and they would end up side by side
(landscape) next to each other on one page.

Now, (from openoffice/openoffice2) using Gnome (or KDE) in Ubuntu I
don't seem to be able to do this.  The printer has remained the same.
(ipp network, HP Laserjet)

I've tried changing between the 3 printer drivers offered to me.  But
I don't seem to be given either landscape printing, or
multiple-pages-per-page anywhere as an option.

I've tried using the 'brochure' mode, but that prints the two pages
next to each other, on the top half of a portrait-oriented page.
