One of the printers on the Windows 2008R2 print server (a Ricoh 2852) is having problems with the duplex. So until that problem is fixed, I need to take away the ability to print duplex.
Normally, I would just go to the printer preferences and turn duplex off. However with this Ricoh driver, it seems that since it detects the printer is duplex, it won't let you disable the feature. In this case, under Printing Preferences, "One click presets" shows 2-sided options. Going to "Manage preset list" the Delete button is disabled and there is a note icon beside it that says "The selected [One Click Preset] cannot be deleted
because it is one of the system provided presets."
Any other way to take away the choice to print duplex for this specific printer? I had suggested disconnecting the duplex module on the printer, but that is not mechanically possible. I am told someone was able to force all printers to print duplex at one point, so maybe there is a way to do the opposite for this printer?
