General Information

Undergraduate students have a printing quota of 200 pages per semester. If a course requires extensive printing the Metargel may request additional quota for the students from the system group. Files can be printed directly from X software (e.g., eclipse, firefox or PDF readers). Text files and PostScript files can be printed from the editor or using shell commmands.

lpr labaneh.ps

And the file will be printed in the nearest printer.

Note that lpr can be used only for text files and PostScript files. Other types of documents should be printed from the applications you use to view them.
