Printing duplex pdfs

After I got printing on my Arch machine working, I had trouble getting pdf's to print duplex from lpr. I tried changing the Duplex option in lpoptions and the default settings for the printer in CUPS, all to no good result. I could get duplex pdf's printed using chrome or evince.

Instead I used pdftops to make a postscript file, which I can lpr in duplex just fine.
