In Ubuntu 12.04, I added a network printer which I had previously used without any problems on a different machine (with the same release of Ubuntu).
Now, with the default generic driver installed, printing multiple pages per sheet from
evince doesn't work properly. If I select 2 per sheet, be it long or short edge, it always prints 4.
Why is this?
It used to happen with non-pdf documents in the past, like from a browser. My workaround was to print to pdf file and then print the pdf itself. Now I'm clueless...
Edit: the same happens with a different network printer, in which I installed the driver specific to its particular model.
