Title: Google cloud print
Post by: trelleboy on April 06, 2014, 02:37:01 pm
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 (https://www.google.com/cloudprint#printers) 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.
