Cloud Print Server

Post by Sciamano »

I was wondering if this tutorial would work on DietPi too (and other boards in addition to the RPi):

I don't have enough free time to try right now, but if it works it could be a useful addition to DietPi.

Looks interesting, good find, would be a great addition.

I'd love to have a stab at this, but lack a printer :( so unable to test it my end.

That's not a big problem. If you manage to set it up I can easily test it on my printer(s).

Excellent, thanks for doing the test.

Full credit to Dave Steele making this installation possible with his maintained repo.

Did you have to do anything else, not included in Step 2, to setup the printer? (eg: so I can ensure our online doc is correct)

I followed the instructions (just omitted the 'sudo') and it worked. No additional steps necessary.
I have even tried printing from my android phone, but the fun part is that the official Google Cloud Print app doesn't detect the printers. Other third-party applications work perfectly, though. :mrgreen:

Excellent, thanks.

I really need to invest in a printer lol. Ink costs, dry up if not used, put me off.
