Printing From Linux
Use the lpr command followed by the printer name and the file to print. The printers available in our labs are cslp1, cslp2, and cslp3. Currently printing can only be done from one of the lab workstations, so cs01 through cs06 have no access to the printers. The use of printers is restricted the following way:
cslp1 - workstations in NS 207A
cslp2 - workstations in NS 207B
cslp3 - workstations in NS 209
The print command can be used the following way, where the option –P specifies the printer - see above:
lpr -Pcslp1 your-filename-to-print
Cancel Printing From Linux
To cancel printing, enter lpq and the printer name with the –P option. This gives you the job’s queue number. Then enter lprm, the printer name with the –P option, and the job number to remove.
|Example. Enter lpq & printer at prompt:||lpq -Pcslp1|
|Output show jobs:||Rand||Owner||Job||Files||Total Size|
|To remove job #4 enter:||lprm –Pcslp1 4|
Printing From Windows or MacOS
No special procedures required. However, when the Windows "Print" dialog box appears check that cslp1, 2, or 3 is the default printer, depending on the lab where you are. If it is not, enter "cslp1", 2, or 3 in the "Printer Name" box.
