Printing

The Computer Science Department participates in the UMass Lowell UPrint initiative. There is a UPrint enabled printer in each of the three computer labs (Olsen 308, 310, 314). Following are some common questions:

  • How do I print from Windows or Mac OS X?

    To print to the HP printers in Olsen 308 and 314 from Windows or OS X use this printer queue: HP_BW_NORTH

    To print to the Xerox printer in Olsen 310 from Windows or OS X use this printer queue: XEROX_BW_NORTH

    Once your job is queued, use your UCard to release the job at the release station next to the printer.

  • How do I print my C program (or other text / postscript files) from the LINUX command line?

    To print the text file "hello.c" to the HP printer in Olsen 308 or Olsen 314:

    lpr -P HP_BW_NORTH -U student-id# hello.c

    To print the text file "hello.c" to the Xerox printer in Olsen 310:

    lpr -P XEROX_BW_NORTH -U student-id# hello.c

    Once your job is queued, use your UCard to release the job at the release station next to the printer.

  • How do I print from Open Office or other graphical linux programs when using the linux workstations?

    Only the printer in Olsen 308 can be printed to from linux gui (graphical) applications.

    When using a linux application's print option, choose the os308gui print queue name.

    Release your job by swiping your ID card at the LINUX GUI ONLY print station in Olsen 308.

  • Should I use recycled paper in the printer?

    No. For every tree you save by re-using paper you will kill 10 more in paper jams. If the printer needs paper, go to Olsen 312 and ask for assistance or email help AT cs.uml.edu

  • What should I do about the jammed printer?

    Let the administrators in OS312 know there is a problem. Please do not try to unjam the printer yourself.

  • Where do I get more paper?

    Go to Olsen 312 and ask for assistance. If nobody is in Olsen 312, email help AT cs.uml.edu.
