Printing to the Ricoh copiers

If you use command line to print, send only postscript or pdf files to the copier. The basic command is

        lp  file.pdf

By default, you will get duplexed (long-edge), grayscale prints if you print to the copiers. Some useful options are

Examples:

        lp -d P file.pdf  (send file to printer P - e.g. P=5)
        lp -o ColorModel=color file.pdf    (print in color)
        lp -o sides=two-sided-short-edge  file.pdf  (duplex along short edge instead of long)

You can combine these commands, for example:

        lp -o sides=two-sided-short-edge -o ColorModel=color file.pdf  (useful for printing tri-fold brochures)
