copy and paste...

copy and paste the file to a text editor then print from the text editor...I'm sure there's a command for print in terminal but this would be easier! Does Mint have Gedit? I've never used it. Wouldn't it be easier to just copy it to a cd so you could transfer the document to your internet capable operating system?

Printing from terminal...

If you're logged into a unix server or linux terminal, you may print text files or postscript files using the "lpr" command. This command prints to the default printer. Currently the default printer on CETS computers is set to the Levine 164 queue. To print a text file called "hrsprn", enter

Code:
 % lpr hrsprn

not sure why a paper copy was printed ?

what i wouldve done was connect the pc to a router with an ethernet cable -or-
save the output to a usb drive then sneaker-net'ed it to a pc with an internet connection to post on this thread.
