We only want Faculty, and some others using this method to print directly to the blackbird printer from their macs. We try to track print usage, to monitor any abuse ( like printing 100's to 1000's of sheets for a non-Bren class; possibly TA'd by a Bren Student.) Anyway, printing directly makes it a little harder to track abuses, so we try to limit those who use this method to our faculty and a few others.
Blackbird is a HP M652 color / black and white laser jet in the Staff mail room. In order to print to it from a mac, you need to install a program that helps you download the proper driver. As there are many different versions of the MAC OS, we can't just provide a single driver for you, so you have to go through the process.
The nutshell process is -
1. Install the program and run it. (select max OSx and the version of your operating system).
2. Download and install the driver
3. Install the printer - use LPD, 188.8.131.52.
You can watch two videos on this process below (sorry for the audio quality).
