(Most printers' names are the same as their room number)
Printing is not free. All printers are controlled by a quota system which charges a set amount per page. Black-and-White printing is 5 cents per page. Colour printing (grad students only) is 10 cents per page.
All students are granted a set amount of quota each semester. Grad students are issued $12.50 (enough for 250 pages). Undergrad students are issued $2.50 (50 pages) for each course they are registered in, plus an extra $2.50. For example if you are registered in 3 classes, then you would receive (3 x 2.50) + 2.50 = $10, which is enough for 200 pages.
If you can't print, the first thing to check is if you still have quota. You can check your quota by logging into one of our unix systems and entering the command chkquota. If you need to purchase more quota, you can do so at the main computer science department office: mc355
Printers need to be added to your profile.
The Undegrad server is named "Panda". To access the printer "mc10" you need to add the printer \\panda.gaul.csd.uwo.ca\mc10.
From Windows: Windows Menu ... Devices and Printers ... Add A Printer ... Add a Network, Wireless or Bluetooth Printer ... The Printer That I Want Isn't Listed ... Select a Shared Printer by Name ... \\panda\mc10
On the Research network, Winfree is the windows server.
Using "Duplex" as an example -- From Windows: Windows Menu ... Devices and Printers ... Add A Printer ... Add a Network, Wireless or Bluetooth Printer ... The Printer That I Want Isn't Listed ... Select a Shared Printer by Name ... \\winfree\duplex
Mac and Linux systems need to print via SAMBA to Winfree.
From our Unix servers (Algernon, etc) You can print by entering the command: lpr -Pduplex file-to-be-printed
