Notes on Printing

  • Duplexing is the default for all Snedecor PaperCut printers.

Graduate Student Copier

  • There are two queues for the graduate student copier.
  • For department or course related work TAs, faculty and staff can use “\\\SNEDH-1211-mfp-estudio657-nocharge” for no charge.  If the above printer is not shown on your Devices and Printers list, you can simply add a network printer and specify the shared printer name with "\\\SNEDH-1211-mfp-estudio657-nocharge".
  • The other queue is “\\\SNEDH-1211-mfp-estudio657” and can be used for 5 unit/page.

How to Add PaperCut Printers on Linux

  • Install Java 8.0+

Java version 8.0 or higher is required. Your Linux distribution might have Java pre-installed or have the option to install. If no Java option exists, Oracle provides a self-install Java distribution for Linux and other major Unix platforms.

Ensure Java 8.0 is installed and the JAVAHOME environment variable is defined on the PATH.

    4. Change the permission of the script to ensure all users can run it.  Use the following command in the Terminal:
