In January 2015 the new Konica-Minolta printers have become operational. These use the “Follow You” protocol (yes, funny name) that allows you to print your job on any printer on the campus, using your Campus Card.
This is for operating system version Lion and later (Mountain Lion, Mavericks, Yosemite). For more information about installing printers, see Printing at Department Math & CS.
Print, i.e. submit a print job, as usual.
The first time you print you may 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, and your password. Do not add 'tue/' in front of it. I have 'tue\' in front of it. Apparently not needed, but harmless.
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 via the KeyChain application. You'll find the item under the name 'tueprint.campus.tue.nl'.
On 15 January 2015, it didn't work on many printers. On the 16th, it seems to work everywhere.
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.
In the beautifully designed document about the print server that came with the email we all got about the new printing system there are three ways of printing mentioned. Follow-You printing, Web printing, and direct printing. That last option would be nice for larger jobs at your familiar printer. Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to work and it is unclear whether it is supported.
