Has anyone had any success deploying the PaperCut Client to Mac computers via the K1000? If so, what is the best method for machines running 10.9?

This is only one way to accomplish this task.  

We ended up creating a offline script to install papercut.  We did this as we also wanted to add the printers to the clients after papercut was installed.  The dependencies include a script file (see below) and the PaperCut.app.zip taken from the server (which is preconfigured to point back to the papercut server).  

Here is the script:<pre>

rm -rf /Applications/PCClient.app

unzip -u PCClient.app.zip -d /Applications

chmod -R 755 /Applications/PCClient.app

#remove old printers
lpadmin -x _71_401___Xerox_7760_B
lpadmin -x _71_401___Xerox_7760GX_A

#add new printers
/usr/sbin/lpadmin -p _71_401___Xerox_7760_A -E -P /Library/Printers/PPDs/Contents/Resources/Xerox\ Phaser\ 7760GX.gz  -o printer-is-shared=false -o auth-info-required=negotiate -v smb://SomePrintServer/71-401-Xerox-7760-A -D "71-401-Xerox-7760-A"

/usr/sbin/lpadmin -p _71_401___Xerox_7760_B -E -P /Library/Printers/PPDs/Contents/Resources/Xerox\ Phaser\ 7760GX.gz  -o printer-is-shared=false -o auth-info-required=negotiate -v smb://SomePrintServer/71-401-Xerox-7760-B -D "71-401-Xerox-7760-B"

I used a managed install to get the PCClient.app onto the computers. I created a zip file of the PCClient.app and use this command for the managed install:
unzip -o pcclient.app.zip && cp -R PCClient.app /Applications/

I have separate scripts to installing printers and setting the login hook to launch PaperCut at login for those machines where these steps are necessary.
