I want to print some iron-ons (like for t-shirts) which requires printing the document in reverse (aka mirror image). Does anyone know a way to do this in Ubuntu 11.10? As far as I know, my printer does not have the function built in.

What sort of document are you trying to print? The application you're using might have support for transforming the image itself. – James Henstridge Apr 14 '12 at 2:51
1st off....what kind of printer do you have? – daslinkard Apr 14 '12 at 4:03

That can be easily done from lp/lpr command line: check file:///usr/share/cups/doc-root/help/options.html#MIRROR on your system.
