VipRiser Q&A

NOTE: You may also want to check general support and ‘why doesn’t my app open‘ page .

The VipRiser printer stays in the ‘paused’ state

  • make sure the VipRiser.app is running while you print

How do I uninstall it

  • execute the uninstall script from the VipRiser menu

The VipRiser doesn’t show up even after I install the driver

  • try to add it in the Terminal
lpadmin -E -D "Print to VipRiser" -p "Print_to_VipRiser" -v "vipriser:/" -P /usr/share/cups/model/vipriser.ppd -o printer-is-shared=false   
cupsenable "Print_to_VipRiser"

cupsaccept "Print_to_VipRiser" 

Change default image resolution from 72PDI

This is application specific setting and may be configured in ‘Printer Features’ section. If you really need to change it for all application, you can always edit the the PPD file manually /usr/share/cups/model/vipriser.ppd

Using custom PPD

You can specify custom PPD when you install the VipRiser printer in the ‘Printer & Scanner’ system preferences.

Is there a way to eliminate the numerical prefix

Either change the configuration in ‘Preferences Panel’ under the ‘…’ tab or create a custom step that saves the PDF under name of your choosing.
