http://unix.stackexchange.com – Given the following facts: We have a document that consists of multiple pages We print multiple copies of it We print duplex (double-sided) We enable the option collate Under several Linux distro's I get the following result: First a stack of pages with page 1 on both sides. Then a stack with page 2 on both sides, &c. I can not think of any situation in which this would be the desired behaviour. I would however like to see a stack of (page 1 + 2), and then a stack of (page 3 + 4), &c. My questions: Do you recognize this behaviour? Do you also think this is a bug? If so, where s (HowTos)
