The first time you print to a printer, you will see a prompt like the one below. The name field may be automatically filled with your computer username; however, this is not the name you should use. Instead, use your IRIS/Kerberos username and password. If you click "Remember this password in my keychain", you will only need to provide this username and password once per printer.

Enter a name and password for the printer

If you accidentally enter the wrong username and/or password, you will most likely see a window like the one below. If you do, you can click the refresh icon to put in your name and password again.

Linux with CUPS Support


Currently, only copiers have been tested to work on Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS. First, we need the Papercut Client:

      1. Run the following command in terminal: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt install default-jre && sudo apt-get install libcanberra-gtl-module
      2. Download Papercut Client 22 for Linux from the Reed downloads page.
      3. Run via the terminal command sh ./
        1. This must be running every time you want to print.

Next, we need to set up the copiers. 

Go to Settings > Printers > Additional Printer Settings (at the bottom of this image).


In the Window that pops up, click "Add"


You now need to enter the copier URI. Select from the choices below.

bookstore copier ipp://
dojo copier ipp://
irc copier ipp://
trillium copier ipp://
parc copier ipp://



Now just hit "Forward", assign a name to the printer, and you're done! Just be sure the Papercut Client is running when you try to print.

Web Print

Papercut's Web Print function makes it easy to print PDFs without having to add the printers to your machine. If no other solution works for you use this, it is limited in choices and makes odd decisions about paper size sometimes (depends on the PDF).

    1. Log in to Papercut (
    2. On the sidebar to the left of the page, select "Web Print".
    3. Select "Submit a Job".
    4. Select the appropriate printer queue from the list.
    5. Enter how many copies you would like, then select "Upload Documents".
    6. Upload the desired PDF document, then select "Upload & Complete".

Releasing Your Print Job

With Mobility Print installed on macOS, Windows, and ChromeOS, you will no longer need to release your printing jobs from Instead, you will see a list of available student printers in your printing menu and your job will come right out of the printer. Linux users will still need to logon to to release their jobs
When printing, your computer will prompt for the username and password for the printer. Use your kerberos username and password for this.
