General Information

Undergraduate students have a printing quota of 200 pages per semester. Additional quota may be obtained from the system group. File can be printed directly from X software (e.g., eclipse, forefox or PDF readers). Text files can be printed from the editor or using shell commmands.

Shell commands for printing and quota management

To print the file labaneh from the command line, type

lpr labaneh

And the file will be printed in the nearest printer.
