If your department is using the uniFLOW/FollowMe print system for printing, your departmental IT support may have already set up the correct printer on your computer. However if the printers do not automatically show as available to print, or need to be updated, you can install the latest version using the Quick instructions or Full (PDF) instructions below:

Adobe products print queue
Some Mac users may experience issues printing jobs from Adobe documents (e.g., Adobe Acrobat). The majority of the time the issue will be that the document which is printed will be a blank document.
A new printer driver has been added to the Software Centre which will allow users to print Adobe products. This printer driver is named 'uniFLOW printers with PostScript driver' in the Software Centre, and when installed is named 'UO Print (Postscript)' when selecting your print queue in the print preview screen.
