OIT Computing Facilities FAQs

  1. How do I get software installed in a lab for a class I teach?

  2. If I want to get software installed in one of the labs who pays for it?

  3. Can I print from my laptop?

  4. How do I print to a lab printer from UNIX (omega/gamma)?

Question: How do I get software installed in a lab for a class I teach?

Please review our software installation request page.

Question: If I want to get software installed in one of the labs who pays for it?

If it serves a large number of people at UT Arlington then OIT will seek funding for the software. If the software directly serves a limited number of people then the group will need to seek it's own funding. Please see the Funding Lab Software Request Policy to learn more.

Question: Can I print from my laptop?

Yes, please visit Laptop Printing in the Labs. This service is new and OIT would appreciate any and all feedback emailed to HelpDesk.

Question: How do I print to a lab printer from UNIX (omega/gamma)?

To print a file (text and postscript files), enter the following command:

lprint -Pqueue_name filename

Each system has a default print queue. To determine the default print queue for your system, issue command "lpstat -s".
