Printing

Printing is very much last century, but on the off-chance that you need to print something you can access the Queen's MFD print queues. The computers have four print queues whose names should be self-explanatory - staff_mono, staff_colour, student_mono, and student_colour.

The system default is student_mono; this can be overridden by:

  • selecting a different queue in either the print dialog
  • using the -d queuename argument to lp, eg. lp -d student_colour myfile.ps
  • setting the PRINTER environment variable in your shell to your preferred value

MFDs are located on the ground and first floors in Main Physics, and MSci students are not currently charged to use these devices - however use is recorded and suspected abuse will be investigated. Don't be the person who ruins things for everyone.
