I have a
HP Color Laser Jet Pro MFP M477fdn, and am trying to print on both sides on Ubuntu 18.04.
If I open any app (pdf reader, or a pdf through Chrome), I can select the "print on both sides" option.
But when I hit print, it just prints one-sided.
- If I print using a Windows laptop, it supports 2-sided just fine.
- If I print a pdf from Google Drive using my android phone, that also works.
- If I visit the CUPS admin page, I can see that 2-sided printing is on.
I assume this is an issue with my local drivers, but I don't think there's a specific driver I can install, other than what CUPS discovers for me.
How might I get this to work?
EDIT: Here's the output of
dpkg -l hplip - note this is AFTER the fix in the solution below, so no clue what this would have looked like before:
