Updating Print Drivers for Pharos Printing
The Student Computing Help Desk recently switched its preferred print driver preference for Pharos student printing to an updated Xerox Global PCL Driver.
Many student notebooks are currently configured to use the Xerox Postscript Driver or an older Xerox Global PCL Driver.
It is recommended that all student notebooks are configured to use the new preferred Xerox Global PCL print driver to optimize Pharos printing capabilities. Switching to the preferred Xerox Global PCL Driver requires an update to the Pharos Printing configuration on your notebook. The Student Computing Help Desk can assist students with updating their Pharos printing configuration. Instructions are also posted on the Computing for Students: Virtual Help Desk.
All computers in Burns 203, Stuart 203, and Library LL1 labs are configured to use the new preferred Xerox Global PCL Driver for Pharos printing. We have implemented this change because of its capability to print secure PDFs at Pharos print stations. Additionally, this change ensures consistency when printing on 3-hole punch paper at the Stuart 203 Pharos station from both lab computers and notebooks using the new Xerox Global PCL Driver.
