PawPrint Installation on Personal Devices

To install PawPrint on a personal device, make sure your device is connected to Eduroam (on-campus). We recommend deleting existing "PawPrinters" prior to installing the new PawPrint options.

PawPrint for Mac OS Big Sur (11) & Monterey (12.2)

  • Download the installer (login to Google Drive with your Davidson credentials). If the .dmg file does not open automatically, double click it to open it as a folder.
  • Open the downloaded file and then run the installer inside, you will have to enter admin credentials for the computer you're using. Do not change the install location or the installer file name.mceclip1.png
  • Once the installer is done running, you should be able to print now.
  • When the print window pops up, select "PawPrint" and click print.
  • Here it will prompt you for your Davidson credentials, enter your Davidson account name (without "@davidson.edu").
  • Your job can now be released at the closest PawPrint printer.

 


PawPrint for Mac OS 10.12 (Sierra) - 10.15 (Catalina)

  • Download the installer (login to Google Drive with your Davidson credentials). If the .dmg file does not open automatically, double click it to open it as a folder. Note: macOS 10.12.6 or later is required.
  • Double click "Paper Cut Print Deploy Client.pkg".
  • Follow the on-screen instructions and accept permissions/allow notifications when prompted.
  • Once installed, you'll see a printer icon in the top menu. (If the icon does not appear, restart your computer and it will show up.)

  • The first time you submit a print job (you may see a printer icon bouncing in the dock), enter your Davidson credentials (username and password)

    IMPORTANT:
    By default, your computer name (not your Davidson username) will be auto-filled when you are prompted to enter credentials. You'll need to change it to your Davidson username and password.  Check the "remember in keychain" option to avoid future prompts.

Troubleshooting Tip
I see a "hold for authentication" error when I try to print.  How can I fix this? 
If you see this error, click the refresh icon, remove the auto-filled contents in the Name field, enter your Davidson username (ex. jodoe) and check the box to "remember in keychain", to avoid future prompts.

Once you've installed PawPrint, you are ready to print your document(s). Submit a print job as you normally would and select PawPrint from the printer list.  In some programs, you may need to select a dropdown to view the complete list of available printers. If you are printing from GSuite (Docs, Sheets, etc.), select “see more” to view a complete list of available printers.

My installation failed.  Who should I contact for support?
