Printing with Follow You

In about January 2015 the new Konica-Minolta printers will be operational. These use the “Follow You” protocol that allows you to print your job on any printer on the campus, using your Campus Card.

Installing Printer

This is for operating system version Lion and later (Mountain Lion, Mavericks). For more information about installing printers, see Printing at Department Math & CS.

  1. Go to the pane to add a printer, click the Advanced cogwheel
  2. Be patient. After a minute or so some text appears in the window.
  3. Choose as Type Windows printer via spoolss
  4. Type in the URL-field:
  smb://tueprint.campus.tue.nl/Tue-Follow-You
  1. Type a name and, optionally, a location.
  2. Select the right driver for Konica Minolta bizhub 364e. If the driver is not in the list, do the following.
    1. Choose “Other…” and select the downloaded file
  3. Click Add. (When the button stays gray, check the URL for typos).
  4. A dialog with Installable Options appears. Configuration I used:
  5. Click Continue.

Printing

The first time you print you will get a dialog asking for authentication. Use your TU/e username (with which your get your mail, login to Oase, etc.). Usually, it is one initial and your surname, without dots etc., e.g., chuizing. Add tue/ in front of it:

 tue/username

If you check the box Remember in my KeyChain, you will not be asked the next time you print. If you made a mistake, you can change the information with the KeyChain application.

After this, go to the printer of your choice and do the following.

  1. Hold your Campus Card to the card reader on the printer.
  2. Choose Follow You Printing on the touch screen on the printer.
  3. Your print job(s) will appear. Choose the one(s) you want to print.
  4. Press the physical print button on the printer.

Using Special Features

When you want to do more than just printing, choose Printer features in the printer dialog (instead of, e.g., Layout). Then choose at Features Sets e.g. Finishing options 1 for stapling, Finishing options 2 for punching holes, etc.
