Platform: Linux, UNIX
Requirements: Ghostscript, Ghostview
If you'd like to preview your printout before sending it to the printer, select "Print To File" from your application. then view the resulting file with Ghostview (gv) before printing it.
Alternatively, set up your application to print with the ps-preview script below, rather than lpr (or lp).
If you want to do duplex printing on a single sided printer, you can use Ghostview for that too. Mark the odd numbered pages (there's a button for it), print the marked pages, then reinsert them into the paper tray the other way up, select the even numbered pages and then print them onto the back of the odd numbered pages. (Don't reinsert the last odd numbered page if you're printing an odd number of pages).
