Sometimes I print two sided documents. Therefore I first print odd pages then I use the same papers in reverse order to print even pages(I just check reverse while printing).

I do this operation manually, it means that I enter page numbers my self, like: 1,3,5,7,9 for odd pages then 2,4,6,8,10 for even pages.

The problem is when I want to print a large number of pages this is hard to do. Imagine 100 pages. Moreover I may make some mistakes in between.

Is there any way to define odd pages in general print dialog of ubuntu?

I am using Ubuntu 12.10 with default hplib for printing.

This might depend on the printer... so make/model/brand might be useful. And it might also be depending on the software you use. –  Rinzwind Apr 15 '13 at 7:21

If you're trying to print from libreoffice, there is an option to print left or right pages only.

Open the print dialog, then choose tle layout tab and choose the appropriate option under the page sides dropdown.

If you're printing a pdf, Document viewer has a similar option under the page setup tab of the print dialog box.
