Printer Tips

CS Lab Printer Information

The printers are straightforward to operate. If you don’t know how to do something, ask someone who does. The most important operation is loading the paper. If the printer is not printing, first check the paper supply. If you notice that the paper supply in the lab is low, let Dr. Marty Wolf know via email.

Another thing to watch out for is people trying to print executable code. It makes a mess and is wasteful. If you notice it happening, advise the person of his/her mistake and help him/her to avoid the mistake. You can usually use the controls on the printer to stop the job and prevent the rest of it from printing. If that fails, just turn it off.

Under Linux, you can get printing and printer information and set your default printer by selecting Printers from the Power Button menu in the upper right hand corner of the Heads Up Display.
