I have one Color Laser printer. In cups I set up tree “printers” (draft, only black and color). The idea is to have just to choose the “printer” and not to fiddle always with the settings. So the idea.
In reality, unfortunately, the printer in ubuntu (not the physical printer, nor the settings in cups) seem to remember the last settings and use this for the next print, this seems even to survive a relogin.
Use case: I chose the printer “only black”, just once I want to print single page instead of duplex. After I chose sinlge page (in cups is duplex defined) the printer prints single page and from now on the setting is put to single page until I set it back to duplex and print a page.
It seems that there is an extra layer in ubuntu where the settings a user made are persisted. Is there a way to prevent this and to always get what is in cups defined?
Thanks a lot
