Share your CUPS printers with google's cloud print. Works with linux and OS X.

This software is a python implementation of a cloud print connector. Unlike Google's linux connector, it does not require chrome to be installed on the server.

Requires

  • python 2.6 or 2.7
  • pycups (can be tricky on OS X) which depends on libcups2-dev

Usage

::

cloudprint [ ...] -d : enable daemon mode (requires the daemon module) -l : logout of the current google account -p pid_file : path to write the pid to (default cloudprint.pid) -a account_file : path to google account ident data (optional) -c : establish and store login credentials, then exit -f : 'fast poll', if notifications aren't working -i regexp : include files matching regexp -x regexp : exclude filees matching regexp regexp: a Python regexp, which is matched against the start of the printer name -s sitename : one-word site-name that will prefix printers -v : verbose output --syslog-address : syslog address to use in daemon mode -h : display this help

If necessary, cloudprint will respond with a URL to be visited for OAuth2 authentication.

Example

::

cloudprint Go to http://google.com/18de674 to claim this printer trying for the win trying for the win success

Examples - Include/Exclude

Include only the printers "lp" and "2up": ::

cloudprint -i lp -i 2up

Exclude all printers whose names start with "GCP-": ::

cloudprint -x GCP-

By default, all printers are included. For the include and exclude options, the argument is a regular expression which is matched against the start of the printer name.

For example, to include all printers whose names begin "lp": ::

cloudprint -i lp # includes both lp and lp2up

Install

::

pip install cloudprint or with optional daemon support pip install cloudprint[daemon]

After running cloudprint, verify that the connector successfully installed the cloud printer by visiting http://www.google.com/cloudprint/manage.html.
