Question Printing with Ubuntu AMD 64

Two questions on printing with Ubuntu.

1. Can I print from last page first so that when the printing is finished I don't have to reverse all the pages.

2. How do I print manually two-sided? My printer allows that but I haven't figured out how to do it with Ubuntu. With Windows there is a place to indicate manual two-sided printing or automatic two-sided printing or just one-sided printing. I want to get totally away from Windows soon so I would like to know how to do this.

Assuming you're using CUPS, the relevant commands are
lp -o outputorder=reverse filename
lp -o page-set=odd filename
   lp -o page-set=even filename
