CSB Printer Setup


Using the New CampusPrint University Document Management System

CSB is implementing a new document management system called CampusPrint, which is centrally managed by VUIT. The CampusPrint Canon iR-ADV C5535i has replaced the Canon iR4035 in room 5140. Other existing printers that use the CSB CUPS printing system are not affected. To access CampusPrint from MacOS and Windows systems, a new printer driver must be installed. For Linux workstations, the CampusPrint printer is already installed and configured in the CSB CUPS printer system.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  1. Can I print from off-campus locations? Yes, if you are connected to the campus VPN using SecurePulse.
  2. What if I don’t have my Vanderbilt ID/Commodore Card with me?  You can enter your VUnetID and ePassword using the printer keyboard.
  3. I installed the Regular Pop-Up driver for Windows 10, but I’m not able to print.  I don’t get a pop-up window to enter my VUnetID and ePassword.  Install the Legacy Pop-Up driver instead and make sure to print to the Legacy printer.
  4. How do I check the status of my job or delete jobs without going to a printer?  You can view and delete your jobs at My Print Center.  DO NOT upload documents using My Print Center.  The billing is not set up correctly and you will be billed too much.  e.g. $0.25 per page for color instead of $0.14.
  5. What happens to print jobs I never actually print? Jobs are removed after 24 hours if they have not been printed.
  6. Can anyone else see or print my jobs? No, your jobs are secured by your Vanderbilt ID/Commodore Card.
  7. Can I print personal documents using CampusPrint? No, for personal printing use Vanderbilt’s pay-for-print service VUPrint.
  8. Can I print documents to the service using lp or lpr from the Linux command line? Yes, just as you would to other printers such as color, im, etc. You should see ‘CampusPrint_Global_SECURE’ as an available printer when you type ‘lpstat -a’. To print to CampusPrint, use ‘lp -d CampusPrint_Global_SECURE filename’ or ‘lpr -P CampusPrint_Global_SECURE filename’.
  9. Does a Mac OS system need to be joined to the VANDERBILT domain?  No, but the username on your Mac must be the same as your VUnetID.  If your Mac OS username is not the same as your VUnetID,  you will need to install the Mac OS Pop-Up driver.
  10. I installed the Mac OS driver.  Why don’t my jobs don’t show up in my print queue? . This happens when your Mac OS username isn’t the same as your VUnetID.  See #7 above.
  11. How do I print two-sided from Linux?  There are two Linux queues:  TBD
  12. Why don’t I see my VUnetID when I swipe my card?  The ID you see is assigned by the Pharos system and it’s never someone’s VUnetID.
  13. Why am I asked to enter a password after scanning my Vanderbilt ID/Commodore Card?  TBD
  14. On Mac OS, is there an easier way to switch between B&W and Color?  Create a color profile using the instructions here.
  15. Can I use my VUMC ID card to print?  No, but you can manually enter your VUnetID and ePassword.
  16. The pop-up driver doesn’t work for MacOS 10.15.0 (Catalina).  Upgrade to 10.15.1.
  17. How do I join my Windows 10 PC to the VANDERBILT domain and log in so that I can use the service?
  18. Can I print using email?  Yes, CampusPrint supports MobilePrint. From any device, including cellphones or tablets, users can forward an email with an attachment to (black and white) or (full color). A single copy of the attachment will appear in the user’s CampusPrint queue and can be released at any card reader-enabled CampusPrint device.
