Installing the Xerox Printer Driver

Apple Menu -> System Preferences -> Hardware -> Print & Fax
  • If the lock in the lower left is closed, click it to unlock so you can edit your settings

Click "+" to add a printer, choose the first option "Add Printers or Scanners..." and under the "IP Printing" tab, enter the following in the fields

Protocol: "Internet Printing Protocol - IPP"

Address: cups.csail.mit.edu

Queue: [combine "printers/" with the "Printer Queue Name" of your printer in the table below, ignoring any text that might be in (parenthesis).
  • E.g., if there was a printer listed as "exp (example printer)" you would enter printers/exp

Name: [delete cups.csail.mit.edu and enter printer name]

Location: [not needed, can leave blank]

Print Using: "Select Printer Software..." then type in just the numbers of the printer model (eg "7970"). Select the matching printer model, then click Add/Close.

Configuring the printer model (Workcentre ONLY! Otherwise, leave defaults)

If a printer is Xerox WorkCentre , then make sure that in "Installable Options" Finisher/Output Tray is set to "Advanced Office Finisher" and Hole Punch Unit to "2&3 Hole Punch Unit". For all other models leave defaults in "Installable Options." Click Continue.

Notes:
  • The printer is now installed. Your default printer may have been changed - check those settings before closing the Print & Fax preference pane.
  • If you have a 64-bit machine and are having problem printing, then try to set the application to a 32-bit mode. For example, you need to print from Safari, then click on Finder -> Applications -> Safari -> Mor Info and check "Open in 32-bit mode". Then print.
  • Printers added to your Mac prior to January 2011 will need to be removed -- at step 2 below, click "-" on an older entry for a printer -- and then added by following these new directions closely. Until you do so, you will not be able to control that printer's double- vs. single-sided printing, stapling, etc.
