What I do:
- I use the internal viewer and press Cmd-P (Mac)
- The window opens, twosided (checkbox) is selected
and my printer: Samsung CLP-550
and print
- message (edited) Process started: lp -d Samsung_CLP-550 -P 1-14 -o sides=one-sided -- "/Users/CORRECTPATH/paper-decision-making.pdf"
- the first mistake is sides=one-sided
- second the correct internal printer name is Samsung_CLP_550 (for lp -d )

I did not find a way to change this through preferences.

Discussion

    • the first mistake is sides=one-sided

    What should it use instead?

    • second the correct internal printer name is Samsung_CLP_550 (for lp -d )

    It just calls QPrinter::printerName to get that name. I do not see an alternative method it could call to get another name.

    Perhaps you can rename the printer?

     
  • printing is not optimized and actually it is not a major goal, since there is always a working pdf viewer anyway.
