Print to a Butler Printer from a Personal Computer

Printing to a Butler Printer from a personal computer is an option available to students, faculty, and staff. IT highly recommends printing in a lab or using Web Print instead of installing the PrintSmart client software. You must install the PrintSmart client in order to print from a personal computer.

Adding Printers to a Personal Computer

  5. If prompted, enter your Butler username and password; ex: BUTLER\username
  6. In the window that appears, double-clickthe 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_1". Find the locations and queue names for printers  here.
  7. On Windows 7 you may be warned about installing a driver. Install the driver.
  8. Once the printer is installed, print a test document
  9. If prompted, enter your Butler username and password; ex: BUTLER\username
