How to print in the Linux Lab
There are two printers available for Linux Lab in rooms 426 and 406. The printer called shark is located in room 426, the printer called trout is located in room 406. By default if you print from any machine in room 426, your printing job will be sent to the printer in room 426 ( shark ). If you print from any Linux machine room 406 your printing job will be sent to the printer in room 406 ( trout )
If you need to print out a text file myfile.txt open a shell window and type:
nenscript myfile.txt or
nenscript -P shark myfile.txt if you want to specify a printer name
If you need to print from emacs, click on
File -- Print Buffer
To print a PostScript File ( a file which has .ps at the end ) use lpr command, for example to print a file myfile.ps open a shell window and type:
lpr myfile.ps or
lpr -P shark myfile.ps ----if you want to specify a printer name.
PLEASE, USE THESE PRINTERS ONLY FOR THE JOBS RELATED TO YOUR CLASSES.
