Laptop users will want to install WEPA drivers for their machines, so they can
print directly to the WEPA service. Having the driver installed, rather than
using the web printing service, will let you use all the print options available
on your laptop, such as picking a range of pages to print, doing 2-ups, etc.
Drivers can be downloaded from the SmithApps website for Windows and Mac.
Note that when you install the driver, it will set itself as your default
printer until you change it.
WEPA kiosk print drivers are also pre-installed on the Computer Lab image. To

prints by swiping a credit card at the WEPA kiosk. You can avoid this surcharge
by paying from your account on the WEPA website. You can even add value to your
WEPA account by swiping a credit card at the WEPA kiosk, and there is no
surcharge for doing this.
