Would love to, but my printers (Officejet 6110 and Deskjet 5650) both 
have a problem when it comes to the duplexer and print jobs with an odd 
number of pages. Same problem appeared in Mandriva 2010.1/2. 
Unfortunately, the guys over at hplip haven't been able to duplicate the 
problem, at least on Mandriva, so it must be something unique to me.

Otherwise, though, hplip 3.11.3a has been working fine. Would my test 
still yield valid info for you?
