I'll look that up later, hopefully tomorrow.

Now I found that when I say "kprinter" for the printer, in kprinter I 
can reach all options I was looking for (duplex, sorting...).

There is only one thing I miss: The printer can combine e. g. two A4 
pages on an A3 sheet. As Scribus doesn't handle A4 pages to A3 printing 
yet, this would be of great value. Unfortunately this option doesn't 
run. The Windows printer driver I got for the copier has this option, 
you just have to say "paper size A3" and "page size A4" and "2 pages on 
a sheet" and "landscape". The Linux CUPS makes the pages smaller, and I 
didn't find any way to tell "keep the pages as large as they are" :-)

Do you know a way of writing the pages to separate ps-files and combine 
them on a single A3 landscape page?
