Printing in Physics from Linux

(This may apply to other operating systems that use CUPS)

Open a terminal

mkdir ~/.cups
echo "ServerName spool.physics.purdue.edu" >> ~/.cups/client.conf
  • It may be necessary to re-open any application that you expect to print from after making this change.

You may use this same procedure to print from the RCAC clusters, and could work on other Purdue UNIX hosts that have a CUPS client installed.

lpr -P [printer name] [name of file]

Example:

lpr -P knuth test.txt
