Unhappy Caon printer in duplex mode loses top margin


I have a Canon MG5751 printer with a duplex feature. When I set duplexing, the first page (probably all odd pages) has no top margin, whatever top margin I set; the print is always right at the top of the page. Even-numbered pages (on the reverse of the odd) print with the correct margin. The same LibreOffice document prints correctly on the same printer with Windows.

This is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, LibreOffice 5.1.6.2, standard Canon driver from the Ubuntu install.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Tim.

Have you selected the correct paper size for the media you are using? A bug report might be required to help correct this issue.

Just a note that you are not alone:

No solutions there though.
