  • When the window opens, simply double click on the printer you are trying to print to.
  • Try to print again, enter your username (Example: acadia\012345g or acadia\jsmith) and your Acadia password.

Mac OS X users: 

  • Click on Spotlight (the magnify glass) and type in the following keychain access.
  • Select the keychain access program to open.
  • In the top right of keychain access program type in printers.acadiau.ca to show all Acadia printer related keychain items.
  • Double click the keychain entry listed and click "Show password" checkbox. Enter your Mac login password when prompted and select "Allow".
  • Update the password with your current Acadia Password and Click "Save Changes".
