how to use a two sided printer?


by printing a pdf document i discovered that my printer is able, by
reeating the sheet, to print double sided pages....

but i can't find anywhere how to tell either latex, dvips or gs how to
activate that behaviour??

never got lpd or cups to work, they only produce gibberish like the one
shown in http://bboett.free.fr/scan.jpg
i use the exact same line as the one specifyed as input filter in
/etc/printcap (for lpd) and it works.... hell knows why....

thus i play myself spooler and launch from an ever open root term
(bleargh...) the command by hand:
/usr/bin/gs -q -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=alc4100 -sPAPERSIZE=a4
-sOutputFile=/dev/lp0 ~bboett/print.ps

thus i need the killer option to one fo those programs that triggers the
double sided printing...

ciao bboett
