Printing at IAAT

Printing from Unix

Printing from the Unix machines at IAAT is done with the where queue is the name of the printer queue (see below) and where file is the name of the file to be printed. Note that there is no blank between the queue-name and the -P or -d, but there is a blank between the queue name and the filename. For other options to lpr and lp please refer to the respective manual pages (man lpr and man lp).

For pretty-printing of ASCII text the program enscript is recommended. Good results can be obtained with enscript -2Gr file, which is the default-setting of the environment variable ENSCRIPT. For other options, please see the manual page.

Printing from MicroSoft Operating Systems

All Unix-printer queues can be reached via the Samba server aitxu2 using the netgroup AIT. Please refer to the MicroSoft manual on how to use these queues as your default printer queue.

Printer Queues

There are several printer-queues for each printer, the names of which indicate how many pages get printed on each sheet of paper, and whether the paper is to be printed on both sides (``duplex'') or not. The general makeup of each queue-name is printer_pages where printer is the printer name, and pages indicates how many pages are printed per sheet of paper. The following table lists the available printer queues.

WARNING: Due to a bug in the ZDV printer software, printing to ps035 and ps036 works only from Linux machines.
