Instructions for printing on multifunctional devices at the Faculty of Education

Printing in the library at Poříčí 31a and on the ground floor of the faculty at Poříčí 31 is connected to the accounting system, where print tasks are printed only to the user who sent them to the queue.


To print from your own laptop, you must first install the appropriate drivers:

Watch out for updates!
The server program changes quite often (sometimes several times a month) and you must always have the current version of the corresponding driver installed to print. To update the driver, you must remove the printer from the printer list and reinstall the new version.

When installing the printer on Windows Vista and Windows 7, the Ysoft program will be installed at the same time and is indicated by a Y icon in the system tray each time Windows starts. In some cases, you may need to enable it to run on your firewall.

If the printer is installed on Windows 7, you must disable the User Account Control tool: Control Panel - User Accounts - Change User Account Control settings - change the setting to "Never notify". You must then restart your computer. If you skip this step, the SafeQ window for print authentication will not open and the job cannot be sent to the printer.


You must connect your laptop to the Internet before you can send a print task.
Make sure you have sufficient credit on your card before sending a print task.
Check the black and white or color print settings before printing.

When printing, you will be prompted to log in - enter your UOC login information and secondary password. You will then unlock the multi-function reader with your ISIC card. The device will print all your jobs sent for printing.
