Two-sided (duplex) printing of a PDF


How can I print a two-sided (duplex) copy of a PDF? Okular refuses to do it - the duplex options are greyed out. Okular can, however, print a two-sided version of a webpage. I'm running Kubuntu 14.10 and my printer is a Brother 7065DN. The document in question is a tax return.

Libre Office does the job

I tried Libre Office for this and it worked, but it seems like overkill. acroread, which is available from older repositories, doesn't seem to know about duplexing at all. I wish that okular had this function for pdf's, since it does have it for other files.

By the way, the tax file wasn't from HR Block. I submitted my return electronically, so a watermarked copy for my own records is not a problem.
