How to print

To print a document to the mono queue:

lpr filename

To print to the colour queue:

lpr -P cloud-colour filename

... and then go to a printer and release your print job as described at Cloud Printing (IS).

Warning

Please DO NOT print .doc or other Microsoft or LibreOffice files from the command line! Use the appropriate application. The printing system tries to understand common file types but it does not understand all of them, especially Microsoft Office files (Word, Excel, etc.).
