In January 2015 the 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 (latest tested: Sierra).
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. Note that the pre-filled name is your user name on your Mac. This may or may not differ from your TU/e username.
Whether 'tue/' or 'tue\' should be in front of it is under debate. For several people just the user name worked.
If you check the box Remember this password 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'.
When you want use special features of the printer, e.g., stapling, choose Printer features in the printer dialog (instead of, e.g., Layout). If you don't see Layout, press Show Details.
Then choose at Features Sets: Finishing options. Then choose where you want your staple, etc.
De option Binding Position is for 2-sided printing. It determines whether the back page is printed upside down or not. If you print in landscape mode, you probably want Top bind (and staple in Left corner or at two positions) (see screenshot), so you can flip a page up (instead of to the left) and read its back. Nevertheless, it seems that sometimes Left bind is required to have this type of binding, probably because the application doesn't tell the printer that the layout is in landscape.
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.
