Printing from a Laptop

 

Installing the necessary print drivers from our website will give you the ultimate control over printers on campus and will ensure that any departmental printers specific to the curriculum you are enrolled in will be available for use. We’ve prepared several options to make it simple to install PaperCut on your system.

 

Option A: Print Driver Installation using SAIC Self Service

This is our preferred method if you are on macOS. Self Service enables the installation of a wide variety of SAIC sanctioned software. The Printing section of the app includes access to an installer for our new PaperCut system as well as an uninstaller tool.

Installing PaperCut through Self Service will also remove any printers from our old print system (uniFLOW) as well as any associated software. For those with Mac computers that do not yet have the Self Service application, more information can be found by watching this video or following these directions to enroll your computer. Alternatively, if you would just like to install print drivers you can download installer below.

 

Option B: Print Driver Installation from PKG Downloads

Macintosh Operating System
Download the following for Macintosh operating systems: macOS X 10.12+
  • 1-PrintDeploy Client
  • 2-Papercut Client
Windows Operating System
Download the following for Windows operating systems:: Windows 8+
  • 1-Print Deploy Client
Print Deploy Download
Print Deploy Client Download
PaperCut Client Download
-•Install Both Drivers•-
Visit Apple's site for information on how to safely install software if you receive an error message

 

Once you’ve installed the appropriate drivers, it is recommended that you RESTART your computer.


Managing Printers using Print Deploy

After restarting your computer, you’ll notice the Print Deploy printer management ICON show up in your menu system. You should be prompted to login into PaperCut. Please use your SAIC Username and Password.

 

The Print Deploy Client is where you’ll manage your installed printers. Note that Print Deploy installs the Color and BW Laser printers by default

 

Click on Add Printers to find wide-format printers that you’d like to install (Note, currently PC users only have BW and Color Laser options)

 

You can install or uninstall printers at any time (B&W and Color Laser Print Queues are not configurable)

 

The main benefit of Print Deploy is that it allows end users to control printers installed on their system and if a Print Driver is updated Print Deploy automatically updates everything for you!
