how do i get ubuntu to print in reverse order
 
i have a BROTHER MFC-495cw and i do alot of printing so when i as openoffice, adobe etc to print a document it always comes out 1st page first with the last page on top (when i do it this way i have to go in and turn everything around i'm tired of doing that) i want it to print the page from last to first that way the first page is always on the top of the stack

i am running ubuntu karmik koala and i already mentioned my printer model

Don't you get the option to select print first page last in the print dialogue box?

Hi

Print Dialogs vary a little depending what package you are trying to print from. Always have a look for box to check that says Reversed or Reverse pages.

In OpenOffice click on Print and select Options and then Reversed. In Adobe Reader, click on Print and check Reverse Pages under Print Range.

Hope that helps

Mark

There is. Click on Print and then Reverse which is down on the bottom right of the print menu.
