More Printing Matters
Printing over the Engineering network can be done by two means:
- Uniflow - There are a collection of canon printer/copier/scanner units around the Department. Any member of the Department can use these facilities. Printing/copying is costed, so those wanting to print or copy must have a means of payment in place before use. Information on uniflow is available on a separate page.
- CUPS (Central Unix Printing System) - Information about CUPS printing follows.
See the network printing page for details of which printers are currently available on CUPS and how to connect your printer.
Networked CUPS printers belong to either a research group or an individual. So before configuring your machine to print to a network printer, make sure that you are authorised to do so.
MS Windows users - Adding and configuring a CUPS network printer
See the separate instructions. These instructions contain information specific to adding and configuring some CUPS printers which aren't online any longer! However the same instructions can be used for printing to any network printer so long as:
- You have permission to print to that printer.
- You have the correct printer drivers installed on your PC.
If in doubt, consult your Computer Officer.
These days poster printing is done by the Print Room.
