To do this, navigate to /Library/Application Support/Pharos/PrintScout, then double-click Uninstall.app and follow on-screen instructions. Once complete, you can proceed to the installation steps below.

Linux Installation Instructions
CIT does not support Linux operating systems and cannot assist with troubleshooting installation and(or) printing issues on a Linux device.
Only the following Linux versions are supported by Pharos:
Ubuntu 18.04 (64-bit), Ubuntu 20.04 (64-bit), Ubuntu 22.04 (will be available the end of September)
Red Hat 8 (64-bit)
The Linux print scout is limited compared to the Windows and macOS scouts. It only installs a print queue called Secure-Printer. It does not install the Pharos Secure Release application or the Setup Guide. In order to view your submitted jobs, you will need to use the Secure Release mobile application, use a Windows or macOS computer to check the Pharos Secure Release application, or you can view your jobs after authenticating at a Pharos Toshiba printer.
Open the SUNYGeneseo_LinuxPrintScout folder after it has unzipped
For Ubuntu Linux, run the following command:
dpkg -i openid-print-scout_2.1.0_amd64.deb
For Red Hat Linux, run the following command:
rpm -i openid-print-scout_2.1.0_amd64.rpm
A printer called Secure-Printer should now be installed and available for use
If you accidentally delete the Pharos Secure Printer after it had been previously installed or if the printer is missing, please restart your computer and login. After a few moments, the printer should recreate itself.
