LibreOffice (Linux - Kubuntu 11.10) defaults the Printer Language type to PDF. I want to use PostScript (Level from Driver), but I can find no way to set this for LibreOffice - I have to choose this option each time I print. CUPS or the pinter settings will not allow me to change the default, and this is a problem ONLY for LibreOffice. PDF print for some reason always prints double sided even if I try to choose another option, but it prints correctly using PostScript.

You can use LibreOffice's
/usr/lib/libreoffice/program/spadmin tool to permanently change the default Printer Language for your printer(s).

In Opensuse the location of the Printer settings tool is /usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/spadmin for 64 bit systems. Worked for me to change the setting there.

For me, spadmin doesn't change the setting, neither does changing the printer settings from within LibreOffice. It always falls back to pdf, which causes a quite annoying bug: all landscape is kept as it is on screen and printed on portrait, thus cutting off part of the contents.
