There are two ways of printing at LUDD. Via one of our terminals, or by SSH.

Printing from Terminals

To print from the terminals, just log on and print as on any other computer. The newest printer is named Edison and is recommended.

Printing by ssh

Printing by ssh may be more pleasant if using an laptop computer while at LUDD. This short guide presumes an *NIX system. But windows users can use WinSCP and PUTTY to get a similar effect.

  1. SCP the file to your home directory.
  2. SSH to
  3. Run the following:
    lpr -P Edison filename

Where you replace filename with the name of the file you want to print.
