Printing at Department Math & CS
Adding a printer
1. Open the pane to add a printer
This pane can be accessed using two methods:
1bis Enable the Advanced option (only if you have not done this before on your computer)
The option “Advanced” in the Add-printer-pane is hidden by default.
The Add Printer pane shows several protocol types (IP, Windows, etc.) in the toolbar. Right-click this bar (that is control + click, or two-finger tap
and choose Customize Toolbar…
Drag the cog wheel Advanced to the toolbar.
2. Add the printer
Go to the pane to add a printer, click the (newly added) Advanced wheel
Be patient. After a minute or so some text appears in the window.
Choose as Type Windows or Windows printer via spoolss
For (Mountain) Lion, Mavericks, and (untested) Yosemite, type in the URL
where name-of-your-printer is the name of the desired printer (e.g., MF7NW, hpcolor3a, psstud05).
* For (Snow) Leopard, type in the URL-field:
smb:/ /TUE/winp3.campus.tue.nl/name-of-your-printer or smb:/ /TUE/svstud.win.tue.nl/name-of-your-printer
Do NOT drop the
.campus.tue.nl suffix; while it might work, it will not work in all situations.
Type a name and, optionally, a location.
A dialog with Installable Options appears. Check your printer for this, I used “Advanced Office Finisher, to get double sided printing and stapling.
