I work at a small (~120 students/semester) study abroad program and I'm looking to revise my setup of a networked printer. As it stands, we have a very mixed environment (every version and SP of Windows from XP to 7 and Mac OS X 10.4 and up) and students that need to print powerpoints, docs, etc. Right now we have a Kyocera 2020D KX.
The main issues are as followed:
1) Driver delivery; it's not ideal to manually install (with the disc) the driver on each of the 120+ student laptops.
2) This likely falls under the driver settings, but it would be ideal if I could set the print profile to print on A4; all of these computers are American and, well, US Letter is not an available paper size in Europe.
3) As of now, the printer chokes on some files; even printing messages off of Gmail, for example, can cause a long (~2min/page) processing time for the printer.
If anyone has any ideas in terms of streamlining the process, please let me know.
