Printing

Remarks

  • You can print from any satellite computer room printer regardless of where you requested printing.
  • One color page is counted as five monochrome pages in your print quota.
  • Please check this page to check the remaining pages within the quota, and so on. You can also check the remaining pages displayed at the upper right corner on the screen of the ondemand terminal below.
  • In the old system there were two types of printers, monochrome (black and white) and color, but in the new system there are only color printers that can print both (monochrome and color) by setting.
  • Please be careful as it may become unintentionally color printing unless you consciously change the setting.
  • Even if you set the Windows printing settings on a satellite terminal, when restarting it will return to the system default settings.
  • In some applications (such as Word, Chrome, etc) on Windows in satellite terminals, even if you specify monochrome, color jobs may be sent to on-demand terminals. Before printing, be sure to check the settings on the on-demand terminal and change the settings if necessary. If you want to send it to an on-demand terminal as monochrome data from the beginning, convert it to PDF, and print it in the procedure of “Make it monochrome by Adobe Acrobat” in the next related FAQ.
    (Related FAQ: Even if I send a print request in monochrome setting from Word, for some reason it becomes in color setting on the on-demand terminal.)
  • When you submit multiple jobs, if you print one job after changing the print settings on the on-demand terminal, all remaining job settings will return to the first state. (This problem was solved by the maintenance on January 21, 2018.)

Printing out from Windows

  1. From the application you are running, enter the settings and print. Select a printer indicated like “printer1” (1 may be another number). If you want to specify color/monochrome, press the “Properties (プロパティ)” button to set it. (However, in some applications this color specification may be ignored. Please refer to Remarks above.)

    * It is also possible to change some settings later: the number of copies, Color → Mono, single-sided → duplex. (However, you can not change Mono → Color, duplex → single-sided later.)
  2. Operate the following on-demand terminal to output to a printer.

Printing out from Linux

* Note: A problem has been reported that, when printing with setting multiple copies on the Linux side, the data are sent to on-demand terminals as the printing request of one copy at once. Please pay attention also to the number of “Charge” when printing. The number of copies can be changed later on the on-demand terminal side. In order to avoid the above problem, please set the number of copies on the on-demand terminal side rather than the Linux side.

    2. Operate the following on-demand terminal to output to a printer.
  • Printing from command line
    Example: the command for printing the output of ls ($ is the prompt)

    $ ls | lpr

    Then operate the following on-demand terminal to output to a printer.
