I cant find anything om google cloud print in the forum. Maybe im blind - but can't find the subject.
I would like to print with google cloud print and save prints on my google drive. Is that possible?

Peppermint is great and perfect for schools - with a little more development..

Hope for some help with cloud printing

Hi trelleboy and welcome to the forum.

Open a terminal and run ...
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install cloudprint
After installing enter cloudprint
Code: [Select]
cloudprint
You will be prompted for your Google account info / password
after which it will add your printers.

Then, go to THIS SITE to manage your printers.

Cloud Print is included by default in Google Chrome if you want to install it. I typically go that route in order to print to my Canon photo printer which doesn't have any Linux drivers. The printer is connected to a Windows 7 machine.
