General printing

The CS department maintains printing resources throughout its various locations for the use of its members. Additionally, a printing quota is enforced to ensure proper access and limit wasteful printing.

Printing from Linux

Users logged into a Linux system have two options for printing files.

  • They may print via the application (if the application provides for it) that created it. This is usually through a print menu option.
  • They may print using the lp or lpr commands.

Printing from Microsoft Windows

Printing from machines running Windows is handled by the application the user is working with. Printing from a Windows machine is still subject to print quotas.
