Duplex (two-sided) printing is the default for all department printers which support it. To request simplex (single-sided) printing, or any of the other special features a particular printer offers, one specifies a modified printer name for the request. The names that correspond to particular printer features can be found in the output of the printers command.

To have a file printed, use the command lpr filename where filename is the name of the file you want to print.
