Linux printing to Peage now simple

This post is over 5 years old, it may be out of date.

Initially as a test, there is now a much simpler alternative to the SMB printing from Linux. A printer “Peage” now is available on the Linux workstations and servers managed by C&CZ. The C&CZ print server translates the Science username to the U- or S-number and sends the print job onwards to a RU payprint server. Command line printing with the command lpr is also possible (lpoptions -pPeage -o SelectColor=Color to make color prints by default).
