Landscape printing broken in CUPS?


I am using version:

cups-config --version - 1.2.4

However, when i use the -o land or -o landscape command it doesn't print in Landscape.

I have the same problem on another server. (Both running CENTOS).

Does landscape printing work in CUPS? Is there a fix?

Thanks in an advance,
