I have solved the problem.
I had to use a recommended ppd.
Yast2 > Printer > Change > within Printer Admin Configuration for Cups >

Select Printer Model and Amend Printer Model HP Laserjet 8000 series to
HP Laserjet 8000 > Thus
PPD is defaulted to HP Laserjet 8000 Foomatic/Postscript (Recommended)
highlight Printer Filter Settings and select Double-sided printing and
click on Next and Finish and select double for printing .
So sorry for posting a rubbish report But it's fine now.
