I am trying to print on my Canon MG5650 via CUPS. I have a driver "Canon MG5600 series - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.11" was selected.

I ran the following command to print "one-sided". the results seems good (left side of the image below):

lpr -P Canon_MG5600_series -o sides=one-sided document.pdf 

However, when I ran flowing command to print "duplex":

lpr -P Canon_MG5600_series -o sides=two-sided-long-edge document.pdf

The first page got cropped at the top (right side of the image below).

I tried printing via the system dialog and via lpr and I got the same results.


Any idea on how to fix that?

  • Hi Adam, would you please provide the command lpr that you had used for printing? – user88036 Sep 18 '18 at 16:02

Apparently it was a driver-related issue. After installing official printer drivers from the manufacturer it started working.
