WHERE DID MY PRINT JOB GO?
After you have completed the steps to install the PaperCut software and printer drivers on your computer, you are ready to go to your favorite program and print. After you have selected the Campus_Queue_Lexmark printer and
printed your document from a program like Microsoft Word, Excel or Apple Pages, your print job then go to a central “server” computer. It will be stored there for 2-hours until you release the job to a printer.
To release your job from any campus Lexmark networked printer (the Library is a great place!), swipe your student ID card or enter either your Centre username/password or your student ID number into the printer interface, click the “release print job” icon on the printer screen and use the interface to select your print job and print!
*OPTIONAL STEP - add the Papercut client to see your printing balance on screen at all times (this will be shown when you release print jobs so you may choose to not have the client installed)
STEP 1: Click on Finder and then 'Go' located in the top of the screen and choose 'Connect to Server.’
STEP 2: There should be a new window that appears. Type in "smb://print-server/PCClient" into the 'Server Address' and click 'Connect'. If prompted, please enter your Centre account credentials.
STEP 3: Click on 'Mac' and then double-click 'client-local- install' to install PaperCut into your Applications folder. You may wish to drag the PaperCut app to your dock since you will need to start it first to print to a network printer.
STEP 4: Once PaperCut has been installed on your computer, a new window should appear asking you for your Login Credentials. You should enter your Centre username and password. Make sure to select the checkbox labels 'Remember my credentials', and then click 'Ok'.
STEP 5: Navigate to the 'System Preferences' on your Mac and select 'Users & Groups' and then click on your profile.
STEP 6: Click on 'Login Items' at the top, and then click on the '+' sign below the word “column”, then in the new window click on 'Applications' on the sidebar, select 'PCClient', and then click ‘Add'.
