These are the Law specific DS-Print setup instructions which will allow you to print from your laptop directly to the MFD machines on Floors 1, 2 and 3 within the Faculty. 

The instructions provided in the below guides you through the installation from start to finish. The images are based using Mac OS X 10.12 and uses Konica as an example of installing a print driver.. 

1. Download the print driver for Mac from Konica Download Centre.
You'll need to search for the Bizhub C368, and select the Driver for your version of Mac

2. Read and Accept the License agreement and download the .dmg file. Once downloaded, run the dmg file and this will install the print driver on your machine. 

3. From "System Preferences" choose "Print & Scan". If required click the locked padlock and authenticate.

4. Click + to add a printer. 

5. Click on the 'Advanced' icon. Set the Type drop down to "Windows printer via spoolers".

Tip: If the Advanced tab is not shown in the toolbar then right click in the toolbar, choose "Customise Toolbar" then drag the Advanced icon into the toolbar.

6. Set the URL to smb://print.ds.cam.ac.uk/Law_FindMe

7. Set Name field identical to the print queue name, don't use any spaces.
Example: Law_FindMe

8. Select "Select Printer Software..." from the "Use" drop down. Choose the correct driver (KONICA MINOLTA C368 PS) from the list. Using the search box makes it easier to find a specific driver from the long list.

TIP: If the driver cannot be found in the list, you'll need to install the driver further. Click on the dmg file that's been mounted (see image below). 

Open the letter folder to find the pkg file - double click to install. 

Run through the install process. 

When you are able to select the driver, accept the presets to continue setting up the printer. 

9. Click Add.

Install DS-Print Print Client (PaperCut) application

Installing the PaperCut client is highly recommended. It will give you feedback about jobs printed or rejected.

1. Download the client from here
2. Open the download then copy "PCClient" to your Applications directory and then run it.
3. Optionally, for convenience, you could drag the PCClient application to the Dock from Applications for quick access. Once added to the Dock, setting the PCClient application to "Open at Login" will ensure the application is always running.

The PaperCut (PCClient) application must be running to receive feedback.

To Print

1. Print your document using the usual method from within the document's application. You will be prompted for authentication, enter your Desktop Services (also known as MCS) username and password or UIS credentials as shown below.
Mac OS Authentication

2. Optionally, tick "Remember this password in my keychain"
3. Your document will print if successfully submitted and feedback will be provided. FindMe printers require submitted print job(s) to be released at the MFD before printing.

 

Notes

Printing in Black & White
The printing system (PaperCut) analyses each submitted print job and charges accordingly to the configuration. Some print drivers create print jobs that appear to be black & white but contain colour information. This causes PaperCut to detect the job as colour. To prevent this you can configure a job to be black & white (also known as greyscale) in the Print dialogue box. The setting location varies from print driver to print driver. You may need to click the "Show Details" button first to display all available options.
