Single-sided printing

Until January 2007, single-sided printing using lpr was available through a separate queue, ps8m1s for printer ps8m1. The single-side queues are no longer available.

For one-sided printing, use:

lpr -o sides=one-sided

Job sheets / Banner pages

To suppress unwanted banner pages:
lpr -o jobsheets=none,none
To add a leading banner page:
lpr -o jobsheets=standard,none
To change the default choice for a printer, ask us.
