This is an old revision of the document!
AOS has two public printers:
Each is controlled via a centralized print server.
McGill's uPrint system is also available on all Linux systems.
Jet is a Hewlett-Packard Laserjet 4250DTN black and white laser printer. It is capable of duplex printing and can be found in room 811 on the Southern wall. *Using this printer is free*.
Rainbow is a Hewlett Packard Laserjet 4700 colour laser printer. It is capable of duplex printing and can be found in room 811 in frount of the Southern wall. *Using this printer costs money charged to your supervisor*.
Printing quotas are based on the actual costs of the toner and paper used for each printer. Here are the prices of each item (all applicable taxes are included):
Note that the constants listed here, such as number of pages per toner, are based on average average/theoretical cases supplied by the hardware vendor. These will likely change in the future based on recorded usage in AOS.
The quotas per printer are calculated on these costs:
|Queue Name||Total Cost per page||Quota Charge per page|
|AOS-Rainbow-NoDuplex Colour Page||0.12||0.12|
|AOS-Rainbow-NoDuplex BW Page||0.03||0.03|
|AOS-Rainbow-Duplex Colour Page||0.11||0.11|
|AOS-Rainbow-Duplex BW Page||0.02||0.02|
Please Note printing to Jet is the preferred method of printing black and white text. Your supervisor is charged if you print to Rainbow.
Note: If you run out of quota, please see your supervisor. He/she will contact me to add more quota for your group.
No configuration should be necessary. Simply issue File → Print and the list of printers should show themselves. Please note that the correct printers start with AOS. If you do not see any printers please contact me at email@example.com.
