Printers - Mac Configuration
The Mac system should be set up with print queues that send the jobs to the print spooler (aka print.phas.ubc.ca) using the LPR protocol. The detailed instructions below were taken from a Mac OS 10.6 (SnowLeopard). Older versions may differ in the details.
- Select Print & Faxfrom the System Preferences page.
- On the Print/Fax screen, any defined printer queues will appear in the left hand column. It will be empty if there are no printer queues. Click on the "+" at bottom.
- On the Add Printer screen, select IP at the top and fill in the following data:
Queue-->One of "lp", "lp3", "lp7", "ColourCopier", "QMI-HP"
Name-->A name suitable for the local queue
Location-->something like "Henn 325" is a good choice
Print Using-->This is an appropriate print driver. Use "Select Printer Software" from the drop-down list to bring up a list of known printers. For "lp", "lp3", and "lp7" use "Generic PostScript Driver", for HP printers, please download the driver from HP website and install it first, then choos "HP Color LaserJet M652" driver, if M652 doesn't exist, then choose M651.
When the Options page appears after clicking on Add, be sure to select "Duplex Unit"
