Install LTS Computing Site Printers on a Laptop (Mac)

Please note that if you are printing from an LTS public site computer, the public site printers are already configured for use and you will not need to do anything different in order to print.

If you wish to print to any of Lehigh's public site printers from a personal laptop or other non-public site computer, the recommended method is Web Print. However, if you wish to have more flexibility with printing options, you may opt to actually install public site printers. Please note that exact procedures for both printing and printer installation can vary from one computer to another. Please read the information below to see how you should proceed with printer installation
