How to print using the Print@Deakin service (Mac OS X)

Note: You will not be able to print to a Ricoh Multi Function device unless the PaperCut Service is installed on your computer.
Printing a document at Deakin University uses the managed print service, Print@Deakin. Using this process, you print to a global print queue and release your job/print your documents at any multi-function printer (MFP) you log in to. The software running the Print@Deakin service is called Papercut.
  1. Install the Print@Deakin service

  2. Send the document to the print queue

    Note: Some customers may also be prompted to select an account code. This happens when your salary is allocated to multiple account codes, or when you hold multiple positions within the university. The account codes are imported into PaperCut from the Human Resources systems.
    1. Select Print from your document or application. Now select the Deakin print queue based on your campus location, as shown in the following table.
      Campus location Print Queue
      Geelong and Waterfront Deakin_Geelong_Printer
      Burwood, Melbourne and Greenwood Park Deakin_Burwood_Printer
      Warrnambool Deakin_Warrnambool_Printer
    2. Select the configuration you require(this configuration can be application dependent, and can vary):
      • Paper size
      • Double or single-sided
      • Colour or black and white
      • Note: There are a small number of printers that can only print in black & white. If you need colour printing, please ensure you use an appropriate printer.
      • Finishing options
    3. Click Print.
  3. Release the document at the printer

    To maintain a secure printing environment, you will automatically be logged out of the device if it has been left inactive for three minutes. To log out manually, press the log out button on the main dashboard of the printer.

    1. Swipe your DeakinCard in the card reader, or enter your Deakin username and password manually using the keypad on the printer. If you have print jobs in the queue, they will display on the screen.

    2. You can choose to print all waiting jobs immediately. To do this, press Print All or
    3. You can print jobs individually by selecting a document in the list. A brief description of the selected job will appear. Press Print.
