I have a Macbook running on lion 10.7.3 and i can't figure out how to print on both sides of the paper in my hp photosmart 5510 printer. Is there no driver that I can download so that the printer does it automatically ? I'm confused I think it is such a waist of paper if you can't print on both sides.

The Photosmart 5510 hardware does not provide Automatic Duplex functionality as you may find listed by the spec below:
Manual duplexing can be done by any of the methods below:
Method one: Perform manual print duplexing using the Page to Print setting:
In order to perform manual duplexing, you shouls use the Pages to Print setting, as you may find listed below:
Method two: Using the Two-Sided Printing application:
You can access this tool by clicking the PDF button at the bottom of the print dialog, then select Two-Sided Printing and follow the on-screen instructions.

i had installed the software for both sided printing for the same HP printer photosmart 5510 all in one, and it worked until I upgraded from Lion to Mountain Lion. I then uninstalled the printer and installed it again, the same with the double sided printing software hp provides. It seemed to work until I press "Print" then nothing happens. If I do the test though it works perfectly. This means that the commands are right. There is something with the printing command. I wonder if there is a newer version of the software which is specific for Mountain Lion or if there is another compatible software. As to manually print Odd and Even way is quite a hassle.

I'm having exactly the same problem, although in my case I only just downloaded and installed the Two-Sided Printing application. The test page prints fine, i.e. the `Do software training for selected printer', option prints correctly, but then nothing happens when trying to actually print document in question - to be specific, nothing happens when attempting to print the document using the Two-Sided Printing application regardless of selection of settings.
Has anyone managed to get any further or run into the same issue?

I am dealing with the same exact issue. Now either the print button doesn't work or I get several pop-ups which glitch and then lead me to force quit the two-sided application. I have downloaded new drivers, re-installed the two-sided app. Nothing is working!

Method 2 above worked, thanks, but Im trying to get 2 pages per side, so first need to choose layout, then 2 pages per side, but because double sided is still greyed I can't get document pages in correct order. Any ideas?
