NOTE: Please reference the current instructions here, Adding a USM Canon Network Printer - Mac OS X



This document will outline what steps USM Macintosh users will need to take in order to migrate their network printers to the new Windows servers. If you've recently upgraded the operating system on your computer (for example, upgrading to Mac OS X 10.9  (Mavericks), then you'll probably need updated printer drivers for your computer if it's printing to the networked Océ Variolink photocopiers/network printers on the USM campus. See this page for updating these special print drivers:

Printing from Mac OS X to Océ Printers

Then download and open the disk image (.dmg) file at the link below.

After double-clicking on the .dmg file, the window will open, revealing the  "USM Printer Utility" icon. We recommend dragging this USM Printer Utility icon to your Applications folder (Macintosh HD > Applications), which will copy the program to the Applications folder. Then run the program from that location.

If you are running OSX v10.7, 10.8, or 10.9 (Lion, Mountain Lion, or Mavericks), Gatekeeper will likely interfere with your ability to open the script inside the USM Printer Utility program. Make sure to RIGHT-CLICK (or hold down the CONTROL key and LEFT-CLICK) the icon and choose OPEN

Here is what the prompt looks like. (It may say that it's "an application downloaded from the Internet and/or it's "from an unidentified developer.":

The dialog is from GateKeeper, and is prompting you to verify that you want to run an unidentified utility. Please click OPEN to proceed. (Do the same if it just says that it's an application downloaded from the Internet.)
