I want to print from libreoffice calc LibreOffice 10m0(Build:2) Ubuntu linux 4.4.0-98-generic kernel I can print pages and a range of pages. I cant print separately even and odd pages nor print pages double-sided. The only workaround for me is to export as pdf and later print from pdf viewer.
I looked there for similiar question with no solution there

UPDATE1 the print dialog window image description

If you go to the File > Print... dialog, you'll see a tab for "Page Layout". One of the options included there is "Page Sides". Here you can specify "Back/left" (= "even") or "Front/right" (= "odd") pages to be printed.


This should allow you to do "manual" duplex (if that is what you are trying to achieve).

What type of printer are you using? LibO is quite old now. Do you have a similar problem with 5.4 or 6.0? On my Linux Mint system with 5.4 and 6.0, my Brother laser duplex printer allows me to specify simplex or duplex printing. My single sided inkjet HP printer just gives single sided as the option. Hence I would need to print odd numbers first then even for duplex output.

On my system I have the options on PRINTER SETTINGS > PROPERTIES > PRINT ONLY SELECTED SHEETS and also PRINTER SETTINGS > PROPERTIES to select DUPLEX, if the printer has this option.

Also PRINT > GENERAL > PROPERTIES will also bring up the DUPLEX option in addition to PRINT > GENERAL giving the option to select which pages to print.
