Printing: Adding a university printer or MFD (Mac)

The PrintAnywhere queues can print to any Konica MFD on campus. However, if you wish to send a print job to a single printer, you can add it to the printer list on a Mac. Complete these steps while on the campus network.

If you are missing the PrintAnywhere queues or have print jobs stuck in a queue, you can use the "Fix Printing Problems" item in Self Service to get them back up and running.

  1. Select , then System Preferences. Choose Printers & Scanners on the second row on the right.
  2. Select in the lower left and choose Add Printer or Scanner…
    • Select the Default tab in the Add window if it is not already.
  3. Select the printer you want. Under Use:, choose the Generic PostScript Printer driver, then click Add.
    • Enter a department or building abbreviation in the search field to narrow the list down.
    • You can set the Name: field as you see fit.
    • You can pick a specific driver under Use:Select Software… for added printer features, but this gets tedious.
