I have a Photosmart with duplexer, attached by wifi.  I have some difficulty 
getting it to remember that I want duplex as default, but I can always 
configure it from the print dialogue.  Does localhost:631 see the print queue 
correctly?  I'm just wondering whether duplex needs to be set up there too.  I 
you can't sort it, HP have a launchpad for problems, and I found them very 
helpful when I first got my all-in-one.

The other thing that strikes me, is that I did have problems on the CentOS box 
at first, because the hplip that was installed didn't have the correct, up-to-
date ppd file.  It could be worth checking that against your F11 box.
