Google Cloud Print on Gentoo
Google have recently released their Google Cloud Print service . It is currently built into Google Chrome on Windows and Mac, but unfortunately it is not yet available officially for Linux.
Fortunately there is an unofficial open source project on Github, called cloudprint . It is fairly new, so isn’t yet in the Gentoo repositories, so I’ve produced an ebuild to make it easy to install and setup under Gentoo Linux.
To make use of the ebuild, simply download the Cloudprint Gentoo ebuild , untar it into the root of your a local portage overlay ( see the Gentoo Local Overlay documentation for creating one ) , and ( after unmasking it ) run:
And cloudprint will then be installed.
Once it is installed, you will need to run:
Then login with your Google Account username and password. Next start, and add to run the server on boot with:
/etc/init.d/cloudprint start rc-update add cloudprint default
Assuming the test page is printed correctly, you can now print from anywhere in the world via Google Cloud Print.
