Pay-for-Print :: Installing Mac Printers

Printer-friendly version

To install printers on your Mac laptop, follow these instructions:

Step 1: Download the printer installer and save the file when prompted. Take note of where you've saved it; by default, it will be in your Downloads folder.

Step 2: Locate the file (Mac-Pharos-Wireless-Drivers-2016.dmg) that you just downloaded. By default, it will be in your Downloads folder.

Note: Depending on your settings, the disk image may mount automatically as a new disk. If it does not, double-click the disk image you just extracted to mount it.

Step 3: The disk image will be mounted on your desktop. Double-click the disk image to access the installation files.

It will mount as a new disk called Mac-Pharos-Wireless-Drivers.

Once the installer opens, follow the prompts to install the Pharos Popup Client and required support files.

The installer will also automatically configure the following printers:

  1. BSS316_Printer1_WiFi
  2. BSS316_Printer2_WiFi
  3. FH143_Printer1_WiFi
  4. LIB101_Color_Printer4_WiFi
  5. LIB101_Printer1_WiFi
  6. LIB101_Printer2_WiFi
  7. LIB101_Printer3_WiFi
  8. UC250-Printer1-Wifi

LIB101 is the main large room in the Library Learning Commons.

To print to any of these printers, follow the printing instructions.

Note: If you decide at any time that you no longer need to be able to print wirelessly, you can uninstall the popup by navigating to Library > Application Support > Pharos > Utilities and running the Uninstaller there. Once that's done, you can delete any installed Pharos printers from the Printers & Scanners section of System Preferences, since they will no longer work.
