    Printing from MAC OS X at Norwegian School of Management Prerequisites

    Let me start out by making one thing VERY clear:

    You need to be logged in with a user with a “Short Name” that is the same as your

    student login. This is the user name you log on to the computers at school with. Example: s09099999

There are 2 ways to achieve this:

    1. create a new account with your login name as “Short Name”

    (RECOMMENDED)

    Log on as “root” and choose Accounts under System Preferences.

    Here you add a new account with a “Short Name” that equals your school

    login.

    2. use Mac?s hard core method for changing your current “shortname”

    (NOT RECOMMENDED):

    In order to print from a MAC OS X 10.5 or Linux operating system, you?ll need PPD files. These are printer definition files that act like Windows “drivers”.

    Download these files to your MAC/Linux machine, and save them on your hard drive where you can access them from the account you use for printing. The PPD file for the black/white Océ3165 printers is here:

    http://www2.bi.no/drivers/printer/student/mac_linux/Oce3165.ppd

Now to the installation of the printers ;

First go to the Apple and choose System Preferences

Choose Print&Fax:

Start adding a new printer by pressing the +

Fill out the window like below. Do NOT press “Add” yet, see next point.

Press the arrows next to “Print Using” and choose “Other”.

Then browse to where you stored the PPD-files mentioned in the beginning.

Choose the PPD-file that corresponds to the QUEUE you specified (OC3165_3ppd)

and press “Open”

Next press “Add”

Depending on what PPD-file you chose, you will be prompted to put in

information about the specifics for that driver (left: Océ3165, right OcéCS171P)

After you press “Continue” you are done!

Here is what my “Print&Fax” overview looks like after I?ve installed

the 3165:

    Both printers should now be available when you try to print from an application on your MAC OS X 10.5x computer.
