All kde applications use the same print widget. But every time i want to print something - I have to set options: grayscale, duplex, two pages per sheet, with single line border.

Is there any way to make kde remember those options, and use them always?

Maybe this feature "died" with KDE 3.5?!? – Kurt Pfeifle Jul 21 '10 at 7:49
It's possible. A lot of good stuff from kde 3.5 does not exist in kde4 :( – user7385 Jul 21 '10 at 9:19

Which distribution? In case of Kubuntu simply use the Printer Configuration applet. There you can set global settings.

Went to printer configuration. chose my printer, in options, have double sided printing enabled, but nothing about printing >1 page per page of output. in normal print dialog, i still have duplex disabled (can enable, on each print separately), and i can set >1 page per page of print. – user7385 Aug 21 '10 at 6:04
