  2. Find the downloaded file and open GreenPrint-KM.pkg.
    • If you see a message that says you cannot open the file, select OK
    • Find the GreenPrint-KM.pkg file in Finder. If you are viewing it in your web browser, you should have the option to Show in Finder. This will show the location of the file.
    • Hold Control and click on the GreenPrint-KM.pkg file.
    • Select Open from the menu that appears
    • Then select Open in the new window
  3. The installer's welcome message appears. Click Continue.
  4. Click Install.
  5. Enter the administrator's password for your computer, then click Install Software.
  6. The GreenPrint-KM installation will run. Click Close when complete and restart your computer.


  1. Download GreenPrint for Windows 64-bit or if your computer cannot use 64-bit applciations, download GreenPrint for Windows 32-bit
    • Check if the version of Windows your computer is running is 32 bit or 64 bit. Right click on This PC (Windows 10) then click Properties from the menu that appears. The System Type will show either 32-bit or 64-bit.
  2. Double-click the GreenPrint-KM.exe file you downloaded above. You might need to right click the installer and chose Run as administrator.
  3. If a Security Warning window appears, click Run or Yes.
  4. Click Install.
  5. If prompted, enter your Dartmouth NetID and password in the appropriate fields then click Next. This is the same user name and password you use to log into your Dartmouth email account.
  6. Once the installation finishes, click Finish.


  1. Open a browser and navigate to http://localhost:631. If you receive a 404 error, CUPS is not correctly installed.
  2. Click administration and add printer. For the port type select LPD/LPR. (These menus will vary in different versions of CUPS, but in principle are the same).
  3. In the connection URI field enter lpd://
  4. The NameDescription and Location fields can be set to help you identify the printer and be set according to your preference. It is recommended that you set the Name field to GreenPrint. Click continue.
  5. On the next screen select the best available driver. What is listed will vary greatly depending on your software repositories. 'Generic PostScript Printer' printer works fine and is always available in CUPS, but does not provide color, ideally any 'Ricoh Aficio MP C#####' should provide the full set of options.
  6. This should complete the installation. Unlike Windows or OSX you will not be prompted when submitting jobs, but as long as your username matches you should have the jobs available to release at the station.
