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

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
