Printing from personal computers

The FindMe system in the Library is managed by the DS-Print, part of the Desktop Services of the University Computing Service. They have prepared instructions which enable users to use the DS-Print services from their own computers. To get started, please choose your operating system:


Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8.1 and 10

PaperCut installation instructions for Windows

During the installation process in the DS-Print Set-up window, you should view Fitzwilliam print queues by clicking on the '+' button next to 'Fitz' and tick the Fitz_FindMe printer.


Mac OS X

To find your OS X version, click on the Apple menu and choose "About This Mac".

Printer drivers

Before following the instructions outlined below, please download the driver using this link: OS X 10.4.x - 10.9.x.

OS X version 10.5 and higher

The instructions for connecting Mac computers to the DS-print printers are available here: http://www.ucs.cam.ac.uk/desktop-services/ds-print/individual/ds-printmac. Please note that while the instructions mention that the PaperCut client application is optional for OS X 10.7 and higher, you may need to install it anyway in case you have trouble with printing.
