Duplex printing and other options on Unix

To find out the capabilities of a specific printer, use the Unix command lphelp pr2126. For a complete list of options, see the Cups manual.

Infrequent or one-time use

If you need to print a document only rarely (say, as a temporary guest or part-time employee), setting up a wired connection for this purpose may be too cumbersome. In that case you may find the following solutions more convenient.

  • Transfer the file(s) to a department server, log in on that server and print the file(s) using Unix shell commands.
