In CUPS, you will find "Modify printer" in the same place as you found "Delete printer". I can't help you with HP printer drivers - it took me a while to find the Samsung driver I needed - but there are many HP users here. It's possible that a drive labelled Laserjet 2200 won't give your duplex printing - the duplex model number is 2200d. I may be wrong if there's no non-duplex version of that printer.

I have found sticking to CUPS more reliable than mixing CUPS & KDE Printer to change settings.

Have you tried downloading the drivers from the HP site. Paste this [ http://tinyurl.com/qgg826z ] into your browser which will bring up the HP driver page for your machine.

Mepis 12 comes with hplip already installed. It's version 3.12.6-3, which should be more than new enough for a Laserjet 2200dse. {this here: http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/mo ... _2200.html says the minimum version required is 0.9.5}

You shouldn't need to be root to install a printer driver.

I found a modify printer butt here:
localhost:631/printers/HP_LaserJet_2200
When I press it it pops up a dialog box prompting for username and password.
Is this connected to the web?

Look in Synaptic. CUPS is installed on your computer.

Okay, I reinstalled the printer driver via CUPS. I have begun a test matrix for printing from Okular and Libreoffice in MEPIS 12. I will report back the results ASAP.

Okay, I got the printing problems GONE for the two cases I most often use:
-multipage .odt documents printed duplex in LibreOffice
-two-page pdf printed in Okular
For the latter case I had to find and set the "long side" duplex option in a Print submenu. I hope that option stays checked next time. However, I cheated. I had the MEPIS12 OS reinstalled from the LiveDVD, for an entirely different reason. So I guess that means nothing I did before matters.
I guess my next printing task will be to figure out how to make libreoffice print duplex pages with sequential page numbers on sequential pages, starting with page 2.
