In order to be able to easily and quickly use your Legic card at the printers, a preliminary registration might be necessary. Proceed as follows:1. Swipe the Legic card across the card reader Hold the card briefly on the card reader until you hear a beeping sound. (Please do not leave the card to lay on the reader)
You'll be then prompted to register the card.
In case a dialog, different than the one depicted below, appears displaying your name in a box in the upper right corner, then your card has already been registered and you can skip the next steps.In the event that the card reader blinks red or rejects the card, then your card has already been linked to a different unauthorized account (the standard case with student accounts). In this case you should contact RBG (via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org) so the incorrect pairing of the accounts can be rendered invalid. 2. Enter your username: Currently, registering is only possible with „username“@in.tum.de or „username“@ma.tum.de. Other accounts aren't supported at present. 3. Enter your respective password. Your name should be displayed in the upper right area. You'll now be able to log in with your card.

In this example, the Legic-ID has been marked in red:
If the card reader simply blinks red upon laying the card on top of it without exhibiting any further behaviour, then the card has been registered on a different account, which isn't authorized to print.
