i'm using Google apps, and i would like to use Google Cloud Print but all my printers are "classic", and for what i understand it is possible to use a classic printer if i have a running pc with my google account on chrome.

is there any service or something that i can install it on my CentOS server so it can be always running and sharing printers too google Cloud Print?

  • You may have better luck in superuser. – Belmin Fernandez Apr 26 '12 at 11:31

I use a python project called cloudprint. It's in the Ubuntu repositories, I don't know about CentOS, check your repos. Alternatively, you could just download it from Github. It's fairly straight forward and works pretty well.


I have that at home. The Printing service for Linux is called CUPS and you can install it in any Linux.

yum install cups

after that, just browse to your_centos_ip:631 and add a printer.

After that, i believe you have to login into your google account in that machine and add the printer in google cloud print service.

EDIT: Check here the help from google cloud printing.


  • Don't think CUPS interacts with Google Cloud Print. – Belmin Fernandez Apr 26 '12 at 11:30
  • No, but google can access the printers. You can add a "Cloud ready printer" and a "Classic Printer". I mention cups, because it's the responsible for printing in Linux. (response edited). I only use Linux and @ home i have this working – Feiticeir0 Apr 26 '12 at 13:04
