Setting up printing

You need an account on the Debeers server to print.

Create a file ~/.config-debeers which contains

     username=XXXXX
     password=XXXXX

where you replace the XXXX above by your username and password on the Debeers server

The standard print icons should now work. There are 2 printer queues defined, lp and fortran. Use the lp printer for all files except raw fortran source code. Use the fortran queue to print raw fortran source code.

Fixing emacs delete key

Create the file ~/.emacs and put the following line in it

     (global-set-key [delete] 'delete-char)
