SCS Printers

Setup

The following are instructions to print to SCS-operated printers located in NSH/Smith/Gates/Wean Hall. Nominally, you can’t use these SCS printers without a SCS account. However, the official SCS printing setup is highly cumbersome (requires joining the SCS Active Directory) and these instructions bypass this requirement by using the Common Unix Printing System (CUPS) built-in to all modern Linux/OS X systems. Windows systems do not support CUPS (to my knowledge).

  • Open a browser
  • Type http://127.0.0.1:631/ in the address bar to open the CUPS web interface.
  • On a Mac, if you don’t already have CUPS enabled, you might need to execute “cupsctl WebInterface=yes” in Terminal. You do not need sudo access.
  • You will be prompted for a username and password. This is the same as your system login – the local username/password that you use to log into your computer. The username can be found with “echo “$USER””.
  • Click "Adding Printers and Classes"
  • Add a "LPD/LPR Host or Printer"
  • Enter the address of the printer. For NSH 1st floor, this is lpd://cyan.srv.cs.cmu.edu/prismCOLOR (for others, see list below)
  • For manufacturer, select "Generic"; for model, select "Generic PostScript Printer".
  • In "Set Default Options", set the status of the Duplexer as "Installed"

If your desired printer is not in the list below, then you might need to figure out the address yourself – by figuring out the color of the server (magenta/yellow/cyan/etc) and inserting the name of the printer (usually posted on the body) at the end.
