Install the Student Printers (Mac)

Bishop O'Dowd uses a system called FollowMe-Printer, which allows you to print your document from a printer of your choice by logging into the system from the printer. This gives you the freedom to print and pick up your document at your convenience. 

To Install the Printer on a Mac:

  1. Click here to access the FollowMe-Printer driver. Download and save the driver to your computer. (If you get a warning that the file might be dangerous, click Download Anyway.)
  2. Go to your Downloads folder (or wherever you saved the driver) and click to open it. This should mount the driver on your desktop.
  3. Click the Apple icon in the top left corner of your computer, then click System Settings then search for Printers & Scanners.
