System: jedit4.3pre7, jdk1.5.0_07, RedHat kernel 2.6.9-34.0.1.ELsmp
Printer: HP LaserJet 4600dtn
In the "Print..." dialog, under the "Appearance" tab, there are radio buttons for "One side", "Tumble", or "Duplex" printing.
When I select duplex printing, the printer properly "prints" both sides of the paper, but the back side is blank. In other words, the front side prints, the printer retracts the page, and the back side prints; but all the text is on the front side only.
Other applications (e.g. acroread) print duplex properly using the lpr flag "-o Duplex=DuplexNoTumble").
How can I find (and fix?) the command jedit uses to print?

jEdit uses the java printing api - it doesn't run a command that can be fixed like you suggest.
The problem could well be with java rather than jEdit.

|The Java Printing API it uses is from Java 1.2,
and there is a newer api, javax.print introduced in Java 1.4
Perhaps the newer API works better/accesses more printer capabilities?
