If your username does not match your netid, add a CUPS_USER variable to your .profile, e.g.:


HTML
export CUPS_USER=bobburton


Congratulations, you have added the PaperCut printer(s)!


Troubleshooting:


If it appears that the job was sent to the printer, but no jobs print out when you log in at the printer you should check this setting:


After you choose print, look at the advanced tab in the print options window.  Make sure user authentication is not set up.  The new system does not require it.
