How can I do duplex printing on a Brother DCP-7065DN printer in Kubuntu 14.10? When I install the printer as a new printer, there are three eligible choices among the Brother drivers: "DCP-7065DN (brlaser3)" and "DCP7065DN" (twice). Which one works?
I solved the duplex problem using the Driver Install Tool in Ubuntu 16.04. The tool will install LPR, CUPSwrapper driver and scanner driver (for scanner models).
Configure your router and give your printer a static IP-address.
Download linux-brprinter-installer-[version].gz from here
Run in terminal:
gunzip linux-brprinter-installer-[version].gz sudo su bash linux-brprinter-installer-[version] 'DCP-7065DN'
When asked "Will you specify the DeviceURI?":
USB Users: Choose N (No)
Network Users: Choose Y (Yes) and give DeviceURI (static IP-address)
After installation you'll find DCP-7065DN duplex settings in:
System Settings -> Printers -> DCP7065DN -> Properties ->
Printer Options -> Duplex: DuplexTumble / DuplexNoTumble / None
Job Options -> Common Options -> More -> Sides: one-sided / two-sided-long-edge / two-sided-short-edge.
The first copy of DCP7065DN worked for me. Of course there shouldn't be three choices of the same printer in the first place, and I hope someone fixes that.
