Google Cloud Print is a fantastic way to link your printers to the cloud and enjoy print-from-anywhere access but there’s a catch. If you don’t have one of the recent Cloud-Print-Ready printers you need to leave your computer on to enable remote access. Read on as we configure a tiny energy-sipping Raspberry Pi for the task.
The 'Printers accesible to Pi' Link is broken. My printer isnt set up eith it and I would like to find out how
Is the Pi connected to the printer by USB or Ethernet?
Same here, I tried searching the site for Raspberry Pi printer and still couldn't find the article
I believe it came out today!... Would have liked to been told that !
Yup, the link works now
My chromium keeps crashing why is this?
is there a way to do this without installing chromium browser? my Raspberry Pi is running headless and has all GUI-related stuff stripped out.
Couldn't find a discussion on the original Getting Started w/ Raspberry Pi article (http://www.howtogeek.com/138281/the-htg-guide-to-getting-started-with-raspberry-pi/) so figured I'd add here in case someone searches for problem/solution I discovered.
As I'm working on command line the wrong symbols were being echo'ing. ~ and @ and # would show up as other symbols.
I figured out my Pi came defaulted to UK keyboard. From command line ran sudo raspi-config, went into Internationalisation Options, Change Keyboard Layout, picked my keyboard, then selected English (US). Saved, rebooted, now everything is hunky dory
This is working for me http://davesteele.github.io/cloudprint-debian/ it's a debian package (dpkg -i to install) should run as a daemon (survive reboots...).
No need to install chromium (and/or tightvnc)....
These instructions no longer work. Google dropped cloudprint support for v22 of Chromium.
I wrote up the instructions for using CUPS and Dave Steele's packaging of the cloudprint service here: http://matthew.mceachen.us/blog/add-google-cloudprint-wifi-access-to-your-older-printer-with-a-raspberry-pi-1342.html
