Guys - the two side printing on Macs is turned ON for some reason - it's odd. But there's a way to turn it off.
Here's the info:
Configure 1-Sided Printing Default for Mac Driver To Configure Mac driver to default to 1-sided printing
Open terminal. Type this and hit enter:
1) Open a browser window and type http://localhost:631
2) On the CUPS screen select the Administration tab
3) Click Manage Printers
4) Select the Canon device by IP address (or name if you can find it on the list)
5) Click Administration drop down box and select Set Default Options
6) Click General
7) Select 1-sided Printing from Print Style drop down box. Select Set Default Options (bottom of page)

Canon? ... WHAT IS THE PRINTER PERFERENCES CONTROL SUPREMACY LOGIC???
This is a Canon Engineering Design policy Flaw....
Canon technical support currently claims that the Print Driver has supremacy and you cannot edit the default print policy.
This is flawed... you have to allow the customer to optionally determine a default print policy ... so make it editable at the driver install level... and be the default at the system level for all users.... plus change the logic to make the physical printer preferences supreme.. If the customer sets the physical printer Registration, that cannot be overrode by the printer driver…
What is needed from Canon is the official design flow chart for supremacy of control of Duplex printing… & other printer preferences… & the logic behind Print driver vs physical printer preferences supremacy… with a challenge to that design policy decision & to allow the customer to control the default printer preferences.
The printer doesn’t obey turning off 2-sided printing at the printer… (A major design decision flaw by Canon engineering…)
I am MIS at a business where I purchased multiple Canon Imageclass LBP6780dn - duplex capable printers … Some for our shipping department to generate shipping papers, pick tickets, pack slips, Bill of Ladings, shipping Manifests, International shipping documents & FedEx/UPS Hazmat Shipping certification documents…
Hence the requirement to print single sided & DOT compliance Shipping Documents…
Physical Printer Registration Setting/ Preferences:
At the printer control panel or via the remote UI… System Manger Control Menu, Settings/Registration Preferences: Paper Source Menu … via Edit there is an option to set 2-sided settings on/off, via a check box & save…
Power Cycle the printer & re-verify that the 2-sided settings is off (uncheck)…
This is our example.
Issue: Print driver default profile (non-editable) supremacy
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 & XP Professional …
Print Driver: Canon LBP6780/3580 UFR II drive…
Driver profile: … Default Settings; Finishing; Print Style: 2-sided Printing
Overrides the Physical Printer Registration Setting/ Preferences…
This is an issue, because we use additionally multiple Citrix remote login sessions for access to different centrally published applications in a NON-AD environment… without a Windows policy hierarchy.
Even in this extremely inconvenience configuration, we are finding printing sometimes doesn’t obey the preference settings and revert to the default 2-side printing setting…
The results is a lack of certainty & control of the printing environment when using Canon printer products…
Canon? … WHAT IS THE CONTROL SUPREMACY LOGIC???
We also found a duplex Bug ... where when you select to print 2 copies of a single sided printout the printer prints the 2 copies on a single duplex printed sheet....

Thanks for helpiong solve a problem almost there.. The Canon Engineers should have left the user option availbale. When I get to the " General" option, my CUPS says " Double Sided" which I turned off. When I go to " Set Default" it wants an ID and password. I tried my desktop ID and Password.. it wants something else.. can you tell me what ID password it wants?

i will try the terminal solution when I get back to the office - several hours of several days wasted with this problem. The solution we found was to open a browser email and print two pages of a long email - aol.com allows you to select single-sided/two-sided (canon print dialogue does not).
We print 2 pages single-sided and then in the print dialogue of the doc leave the print setting as "last used settings". If this is not changed we can print single-sided until someone tries double sided again.
On the printer (Canon D500) we have turned off double-sided, and in the print diaglogue "presets/layout/two-sided" is off, but this does not help.
OS X 10.11 El Capitain, Mac Pro.
Canon, please fix your software and release an update.

I know this is an old forum. But I came across this problem after purchasing new printers for our office. My problem is in windows 7. To make the print driver always print one side, search for "Print Managment" , open it. Go to the folder "All Printers". Right click the printer you want to change, go to "Set Printing Defaults", choose one sided. Hit apply, okay
