    Works like a charm! I believe the other review is refering to former versions, as I found it not at all complicated to install... No problem if you are not a totally inexperienced linux user. Thanks a lot!

    I was searching the net for duplex software for my epson l210 inkjet MFP and fortunately found this piece of software. I thank the developer for his efforts, however I would like to point out that the installation is not so simple for non technical persons. The readme and other help files are TOO TECHNICAL for a lesser mortal to understand( many of us do not understand what an script is, I am sure).... Kindly publish an algorithmic way to install the software.. I have already installed all the suggested dependencies ( I am not sure if it is the correct term...) like Yad and all others, uncompressed all the scripts and placed in the /bin directory,created .enscript and placed the spooler <path> /duplex, yet i am not able to invoke the duplex printing mechanism...means how to run the GUI kmprb and whether this can be hooked up to the system printing dialog, I am not able to understand. Please understand that not everyone is a computer geek and sometimes morons like me also need software like duplexpr. Kindly publish it in a pointwise format.. like.. Step 1... do this Step-2 do that.... and so on. Regards and Thanks Shrikant Sharma
