The printer doubles the number of copies.

The printer doubles the number of copies.

Mageia 7.1 64-bit, KDE, USB-printer Kyocera FS-1040. The driver is installed from the official Kyocera website LinuxDrv_1.1203_FS-1x2xMFP.zip https://www.kyoceradocumentsolutions.ru/index/service_support/download_center.false.driver.fs1040._.en.html
If, when printing, for example, from LibreOffice, the number of copies is set to "2", then the printer prints 2 times more - 4 copies.
If the number of copies is set to "1", then prints correctly.
When printing, for example the print.pdf file through Okular, when setting the number of copies to "2" - prints 4 copies.
The same thing happens in Mageia version 5.
But, if I print through the terminal:
Code: Select all
lpr ~ / Desktop / print.pdf - # 2

That, in this case, prints correctly - 2 copies. If I print from a Windows computer through a network, the printer prints correctly, for example, it prints 2 copies, like 2.

Problem in KDE?

Seems more like a driver issue. Maybe have a look at https://unix.stackexchange.com/question ... -as-i-want

It turns out that the problem is with the print menu item "Collate". By default, a check mark in this item is set. It is she who introduces the problem by multiplying the number of copies by herself. Those. if you print 3 copies with a set fad, then you get 3*3 =9 copies, if 10, you get 10*10=100 copies!
When you uncheck this box, the print becomes correct.

I think that is inherited from the defaults supplied by cups or the driver.

Yes, most likely the problem is in the driver. I tried this driver under Ubunta. The problem remains - it prints in the same way as in Mageia.

Did you read the link I've posted, it shows how to fix the settings from the driver.

Yes, I read the link, thanks! But for Kioser FS-1040, the "rastertokpsl" filter has a binary (not text) format. There is no such parameter "CUPSOPTION" in the file (and in the file "Kyocera_FS-1040GDI.ppd" also not). I did not find anything similar in these files.
The grep command finds nothing:
Code: Select all
[root@Mageia andrej]# grep CUPSOPTION -r /usr/lib/cups/filter
[root@Mageia andrej]#

I used this driver under Mageia-5. It has the same problem with printing multiple copies. On Mageia-7.1 this driver did not work for me.
