Print duplex test page when duplex enabled

Feature state

openSUSE-11.3
Done

Description

It is easy to enable duplex printing in the YaST printer configuration module.  However, the test page that is printed from the YaSt module is only one page long, making it useless for testing whether the duplex printing is actually working correctly.  To test it you need to make a two-page document by hand and then print that.  Further, cups has the somewhat obtuse "Tumble"/"NoTumble" option, and it is not really obvious what this does.  So it would be nice if, when duplex is enabled, the "Print Test Page" button prints a two-page document so you can see if duplex is working and is oriented how you want it.

Since yast2-printer version 2.20.0
a two-page test page testprint.2pages.ps is added
and the test page printing is enhanced to let the
user choose to print one (default) or two pages
test print e.g. to test duplex printing, see
