Sharp MX-3114N Printer/Copier

Unix Printing

The Sharp MX-3114N has a number of features which are usually accessible from the front panel when operating in photocopier mode. The use of these features is desirable when operating the copier in printer mode and can be selected using the xlp print command.

We recommend that users use the xlp command to submit jobs to the copier as it is far easier to select the print options using a graphical interface. However, if users wish to use the lp command, the lp options specific to this photocopier are listed below:

Note: general lp options are described in the CUPS User Documentation.
