General

Printing at Free Geek is handled by CUPS directed to physical printers. Printers are either network attached with a central server acting as a catalog or they are directly attached to terminal machines with CUPS auto discovery sharing them out.

Current Printers

Mezzanine

Location Under the phone desk
Connection Network (10.0.5.54)
URL ipp://10.0.5.35:631/printers/Mezzanine
Notes Large images tend to not work, and some complex documents. For complex documents first printing/converting to a post script file then printing the post script tends to work. The network settings don't handle subnetting correctly so only hosts on it's local network can talk directly.

Cave

Location Cave against north wall
Connection USB to North terminal
URL varies (should auto detect)
Notes The machine on the north desk needs to be on for this printer to be usable.
