Printers

Printer names indicate their room number in Farris. The printer fec309 is in Farris Engineering room 309.

All printers print duplex by default. Adding an “s” to the end of the printer queue will print single-sided. For example, lpr -Pfec309s will print single-sided on the black and white printer in Farris 309, while lpr -Pfec309 will print duplex.

There is a poster printer that is 42 inches wide. Paper is available in 24, 36, and 42 inch width. Talk to the systems folks first so they can load the right paper and give you the right settings and queue name—some of the defaults can be non-intuitive. It’s located in the System room, FEC 307, next door to the elevator.
