Requesting access to the Linux print server

If you are installing these printers on a personal computer, where your username differs from your University of Michigan uniqname, you will need to create a ticket with the Randall office to have your alternate account added to the Linux print server.

You can email LSATechnologyServices@umich.edu with the details of your request to automatically create a ticket, or please feel free to visit our website and submit a help ticket.

Installing Xerox Print Manager

  1. Download the driver package (.tar.gz file) from the Driver section for your printer listed in this article.
  2. Extract the package: tar xvzf file.tar.gz
  3. Change to the extracted directory: cd file
  4. Run the install script as root: sudo ./install
  5. The script will install xeroxprtmgr (xeroxofficeprtmgr for the RHEL8 version) and related utilities and install the print queue with available options.


When you attempt to print, a Xerox dialog box will be displayed where you can select options like duplex and stapling.
