Lab FAQ: Printing in Linux

When printing at the Linux meeting, two printers will always be available, an identified as ImpresoraBN and another as a ImpresoraColor.

Both printers are physically located in the reprography of the building, that is where you must collect and pay impressions.

IMPORTANT: Jobs are not automatically printed. They remain in a queue until the student is physically moved to the reprographics and printing requests thereof. If you do not want to print what you were told there are two options: leave it in the queue (two days is deleted) passing by copying and indicate that it erased. NOTHING THAT IS NOT SUITABLE FOR PRINTED USER'S OWN
