Duplex Printing in Linux command line



We installed the latest Linux driver for Xerox WorkCentre 5632/5638/5645/5655 and completed setup configuration with xpadmin util in a Red Hat Enterprise system.


However we are not able to print pdfs in duplex mode.

We tried using the lp/lpr and xprint commands but with no luck.


Here are somme attempts to pass the correct parameter, wich all returned to Single side printing.


lp -oPrintoutMode=Draft -oDuplex=DuplexNoTumble /ICAP/Word.pdf

xprint -oDuplex=NoTumble /ICAP/Word.pdf


Please take into account, that when printing via the User Interface (e.g. with Acrobat Reader) the parameter is passed correctly and the document is printied in both sides.


Can you please provide some help on this?
