Printing to a Xerox printer using a University-managed macOS computer

Printing to the new Xerox copiers on macOS uses Papercut client and Papercut Print Deploy. Just like on Windows, the UMS-FindMe queue will be automatically installed, with optional direct print queues available. Faculty and staff have some limitations when using the UMS-FindMe queue on macOS. First, duplex will be available, however, staple and hole punch will require using the direct print queue. Next, managed macOS computers are not connected to the University of Maine System active directory, so users will need to use "UAD\{ums username}" in the login window when printing. Finally, if a faculty or staff logs into a computer where their username is not the same as their UMS username, they will need to sign into Papercut as well. These credentials can be saved to the Keychain to reduce logins with printing.


Installing Papercut Client and Print Deploy client

  1. The Papercut client and Papercut Print Deploy client will be automatically pushed to all devices when your campus has migrated to Xerox copiers.
  2. The applications will also be made part of the standard application deployment for all new machines.
  3. On a University-managed, open the "UMS Application Catalog" from the Applications folder.
