Ubuntu Printer Management : CUPS

I was trying to get a HP LaserJet 4250 to work on my Ubuntu machine (12.4.1 LTS). It turned out that printing two pages on one sheet in addition to duplex printing would always result in four pages on one sheet with no content on the back. I have no idea why. I was able to resolve this by removing the printer from the gnome-printers-panel and the using CUPS web frontend at


to add the printer. I was using the CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.8-pre1 driver.
