Installing Konica Printer Drivers On Non-Drake Owned Computers (How-to)

Web print can print files from Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint along with PDF, and various image formats in color or black and white. If you need to print other types of files including those from Adobe Creative Cloud software, you will need to install drivers and a client on your computer.

Drivers will also allow you to use printer-specific features like stapling, hole punching, and the use of special size paper as well as change default printing settings.

If you don't want to install the client and drivers, you can direct print these file types or use special features from computers in campus labs.


Installing Mac Drivers and Software

NOTE: You need to be connected to the Drake network to install necessary printer software.

1. From the Finder menu, go to the Go menu, select Connect to Server.

 

2. Enter smb://print.drake.edu in the address location and select Connect. When prompted, enter your Drake ID number and password.

 
Entering Name and password screen

3. Open PCCLient->mac folder.

4. Copy Drake Printer Package OS 10.9 And Above.pkg to your desktop and double click it to run the Installer

This package will install print drivers, the PaperCut Client, and configure BW_FollowMe and Color_FollowMe printers on Mac OS X 10.9 or above.

  • Printer drivers and PaperCut client take less than 100MB of drive space
  • Print drivers are installed in the printer library of your computer
  • PaperCut client (PCCClient) is installed in the Applications folder

5. Restart your computer to complete the set up.

When PaperCut Client launches, you will be prompted to enter the account number (usually your Drake ID) and password. PaperCut will display information similar to this:

The first time you print to a Drake device, an additional request will be made to connect to the printer. Use the same account entered in the previous step (usually your Drake ID) and password to connect to the printer and complete the print session. Optionally, the account information can be saved if a lot of printing is done from the computer. If you do save the information realize that if you change your password, printing may stop working until the new password is used.

 

Installing PC Drivers and Software

NOTE: You need to be connected to the Drake network to install necessary printer software

1. Open Windows or File Explorer. Enter \\print.drake.edu in the address location

You will need to authenticate by entering your Drake credentials. Be sure to enter your username in the following format: drake\100XXXXXX (your Drake ID number). Click OK to save your password if desired.

2. Double click on each of the printers: BW_FollowMe and Color_FollowMe.

When the printers are finished installing, a print queue window will open. Close the print queue windows.

NOTE: You may need to repeat steps 1 and 2 if you haven't printed from this computer in a while. Repeating the authentication steps ensures you have permission to print from the account. 

3. Back in the first Explorer window, open PCCLient->win folder.

Double click client-local-install and a standard Windows installer wizard will start. Accept the defaults and click next until the finish button appears.

Click Finish.

 

4. Restart your computer to complete the set up.

After installation and restart, a PaperCut dialog box will appear. You will need to enter your Drake ID number and password in order to allow printing to Drake printers.

The first time you print to a Drake device, an additional request will be made to connect to the printer. Use your Drake ID and password to connect to the printer and complete the print session. You can save your password by clicking Remember my identity to avoid repeating this step.
