Submitting a Print Job

From UBUnix, you can print to the following printers:

To submit a file for printing to Bell 101 (the default location), use the lpr command:

lpr filename

To print file to one of the other two printers; you must precede the printer location with –P:

lpr –PCapen filename

lpr –PAbbott filename

Releasing Your Job to the Printer

You must release your file at a Print Release Station before it will print.  

Print jobs sent to a printer location but not released remain in the queue for up to 24 hours; if they are not released they are automatically deleted after 24 hours.

Once you release it and it is printed, your print job will be available at the print service counter for 2 days. If it is not picked up after 2 days, it will be discarded.
