Adding Printers to a COPHS Mobile Computer

  1. Ensure you have installed the PrintSmart client. For directions on doing so, click here
  2. Click the Start menu (Windows 7) or click Start and go to Run (Windows XP)
  3. Type  \\buprint into the search bar in the start menu and press the Enter key (Windows XP users will need to type in the open dialog box)
  4. If prompted, enter your Butler username and password; ex: BUTLER\username
  5. In the window that appears, double-click on the printer you wish to install. Printers are named according to the building and room in which they are located. For instance, Starbucks is "AU_starbucks", Atherton Computer Lab is "AU_lab_1", and Irwin Library Lab is "IL_120_K". Find the locations and queue names for printers  here.
  6. On Windows 7 you may be warned about installing a driver. Install the driver.
  7. Once you add a printer, you will not have to re-add it again (unless you manually remove it from your printer list)
