Duplex printing on Mac for Konica Minolta printers

I am trying to print double-sided from a mac onto Konica Minolta printers (361, 501, C552) but in the print layout options the setting is disabled (greyed out).  I tried installing the latest drivers.  I'm pretty sure this has to do with the installed options but I can't find any documentation for the KM printers regarding installable options and what they're called.

Thanks in advance.

There is a setting page on the print options called "Layout / Finish" where the setting is hiding.

Are you using the PS print driver? I have found that on Mac's, this seems to be necessary to get the options to show up correctly. Also, there is usually an "Installed Options" tab on the printer properties. There you select the appropriate finisher to get the options to show up.

Actually, it is under the device settings. Below is a link to the KM printer driver user guide for configuring printers.

In the Printer Properties open the Device Setting tab then you can enable Duplex in the Device Options list.

Thank you for the info, problem is I'm not sure what finisher I have (or need), but I guess I will have to find out through the printer techs.

Also, "device settings" is a Windows setting, not OS X.

Yes, you really need to know what finisher you have to properly set up the printer properties. Most of these have 2 or 4 different finishers, all with different options.
