To set up printing to the MathSoc printer, do the following steps:

Setting up CUPS, the printing subsystem

  1. Install cups.
  2. Go to http://localhost:631/. Go to 'Add Printer'. You may need to supply the root username/password.
  3. Click 'Internet Printing Protocol (ipp)'. CSC doesn't have any local printers, chances are all printers are connected via LAN. If it is LAN, then it is ipp.
  4. Enter connection, name, and description of the printer.

MathSoc Printer

  1. Go to the Brother site and grab the cupswrapper and lpr drivers.
  2. Install the drivers with dpkg. You may need to use --force architecture on a 64-bit machine; don't worry, the package is actually arch-independent.
  3. Printer Connection: ipp://lp-mc3038.mathsoc.uwaterloo.ca/ipp
  4. Name: MathSoc
  5. Description: The colour printer in MathSoc. Printing is 10 cents per double-sided black and white sheet, and 30 cents per colour side.
  6. Brand: Brother
  7. Make: MFC 9770CDW
  8. Default options: make sure that Color is set to Mono and Two-sided printing is set to Long-edge.

  1. Printer Connection: ipp://print.cs.uwaterloo.ca/printers/ljp_3016
  2. Name: ljp_3016
  3. Description: Main Math Printers
  4. Location: MC 3016
  5. Brand: HP
  6. Make: LaserJet 4250 Foomatic/Postscript
  7. Default options: make sure that two-sided printing is set to long-edge
