If you don't want to use driver printer, or you need to print but you don't have a computer near you, it is possible to print one or multiple documents by simply sending an mail.
This functionality allows you to :
- Print from a smartphone
- Force single-sided or black and white printing
- Not install printer driver
Send your email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
This works only if you send mail from the email that you use to login to HAL.
You must attach every document you need to print to the email. By default, each document you attach costs 2 credits. Even if your document is already in black and white you need to specify it.
How to specify single-sided or back and white ?
To force simplex or black and white printing you need to rename the filename of your attachment.
For single-sided printing: You must add "simplex_" at the begining of the filename.
To force black and white: You must add "black_" at the bigining of the filename.
If you want to apply the 2 options for the same file, add "simplex_black_" at the beginning of the filename.
