|STEP 1: Creating An Account With Your "Domain" Credentials|
|Log into your Mac using an administrator account and go to the "System Preferences..." under the "Apple" menu.|
|Double-click on the "Users & Groups" icon in the main panel.|
|Click the padlock icon to unlock the "Users & Groups" settings panel. (You can ignore the "blacked out" personal information.)|
|You'll have to enter your Mac's admin user name and password to continue.|
|Here is where you enter the information to create a user with your domain credentials. Click on the "+" sign and follow the example to enter YOUR domain user name and password.
NOTE: If you already have an account using your full name, just enter something different in the "Full Name" field, like a different version of your name (Dan instead of Daniel, MyPrintProfile, etc...). The critical information on this pane is the domain user name and password.
|Check off the "Allow user to administer this computer", close the System Preferences panel, and log out of your admin account.|
|STEP 2: Configuring The Printer Settings|
|Log into the new account you just created in "Step 1" and again go to the "System Preferences..." under the "Apple" menu.|
|Double-click on the "Print & Scan" icon to set up a printer.|
|Click on the Padlock icon (if it's locked) and the enter your admin password if required. Then add a printer by clicking on the "+" sign.|
|Select the "IP" printer icon in the window that pops up.|
|Choose "Line Printer Daemon - LDP" as the protocol and then fill out the fields with the information in this graphic image. Here is the same information if you want to copy & paste: (just the stuff between the quotes)
|Choose "Select Printer Software..." to select the HP 9040 printer driver in the next pane below.|
|You can scroll through the entire list if you want, but it's faster to locate the driver using the search function. If I were to do it again I'd search for "9040" instead of "hp".||
Not seeing any HP printers? Then you don't have the HP printer drivers installed. Go here to download them:
HP Printer Drivers for Mac OS X Lion
Just follow the instructions to install them and then try this step again.
|Here's how the "Add Printer" window should look before you click on the "Add" button in the lower right.|
|These were the default settings for the printer options and I left them alone and just clicked on the "OK" button.|
|The new printer will now be available in your list of printers in the "Print & Scan" preferences panel.|
|This is what the print dialog box looks like in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. Just click on the "Print" button to add your print job to the print queue. Print jobs in the queue are deleted after 4 hours unless released at one of the two PaperCut print release stations (across the hall from the student HP 9040 printers) on the 3rd floor of the library.|
|When I sent this print job to the printer a little "HP 9040" icon popped up in my dock and then disappeared. If it DOESN"T go away then you have a problem. (Configuration issue, not on the student network, etc....) Even if it does disappear there can still be problems -- see the final notes below.|
