Adding Printers: optional features

At some stage in the process of installing a printer, you should be asked to specify optional features. This page attempts to document the extra facilities of the printers maintained by Central Physics, which for any one type tend to have a uniform set of extras. For a list of Central-Physics printers (by queue name, type and location), please see List of Printers in Physics.

This initially concentrates on the public Sharp printers in the Denys Wilkinson building; options are listed in the order in which they appear in the MacOS X driver setup dialogue ("driver set" is of interest to those downloading their own drivers or PPD suites, eg from Sharp's UK Download Centre or SharpUSA, to help avoid duplication). Please help make good any errors or omissions by e-mailing IT Support at the usual address, or adding a comment via the link at the foot of this page.


You can verify the settings after installation, and adjust them if and as necessary, by going to Preferences > Print & Scan > Options & Supplies > Driver.
