Creating Custom Uniprint Popup Packages for Mac

Version 6

    We are often asked how to create Uniprint popup packages that work on Mac clients.  Pharos provides a simple graphical interface in the Pharos Administrator to help you create Windows-based popup packages, but creating and rolling out packages for the Mac can be a daunting task for non-Mac administrators.

     

    We have an article on the topic in the Knowledge Base in the Pharos Community, but I’d like to simplify the process even further for those who are just getting into this.

     

    We won’t get into customizing defaults via CUPS; we’ll leave that to a future post on the topic. Generally, there are two ways to install a Pharos queue on the Mac side. You can set them up with Pharos Popups or without. First, we’ll go through how to set them up without Popups. This is always a good method to use to acquire the driver you may use within the Popup package.
