This has baffled me for a few weeks now. I have a Kyocera network printer set up in CUPS, and whenever I try to print to it I seem to end up with n² as many copies as I request. That is,
- I try to print 2 copies of a document and I get 4
- I try to print 5 copies of a document and I get 25
- I try to print 60 copies of a document unattended, it runs out of paper, and I wander around the building depositing the extra copies in many recycling bins so as not to implicate myself too directly as the culprit
I cannot begin to imagine how to diagnose this, but besides being mildly amusing it does mean that to get my desired 60 copies of a document I have to go to some esoteric lengths (e.g. print 7 copies, print 3 copies, print 1 copy two times) which was amusing at first but has quickly gotten old.
So I am posting here in the hopes that someone can reassure me that I am not crazy, and hope that maybe someone might have experienced this before and know of a way to fix it?
