Hi Sam, and thanks for your bugreport,

Hunting your bug is not easy as upstream doesn't have a public VCS (so we have 
to work on big patches and make wild guesses). Furthermore, Debian has seen no 
version between 20090908 and 20110210, so we don't have much data.

But… I tried a simple patch (attached), that only re-introduces the Duplex 
option in the PPD. a package built with this package is available there: 


Could you try it and report back if it does work as expected ?

Note that from the upstream changelog, the Duplex option has been removed from 
some CLP printers in favour of a tool to simulate it (gnome-manual-duplex):

      * foo2qpdl foomatic-db and PPD files: fix Duplex for clp-6100, clp-610,
        clp-620. Manual Duplex is no longer supported. Use Gnome-Manual-Duplex

        Please delete and recreate the Samsung CLP-6?? printers.

So it might be possible that your bug is actually a desired evolution from
