Google Cloud Print on Ubuntu 16.04

As I wanted to be able to easily print from my phone and chromebook, Google Cloud Print was the solution.

Here are the simple steps that I used:

  1. sudo apt install google-cloud-print-connector
  2. gcp-cups-connector-util init
    • It will require you to enter a code at https://www.google.com/device to create the OAuth credentials
    • save the created config file somewhere safe
  3. gcp-cups-connector -config-filename gcp-cups-connector.config.json

Don't forget to install Cloud Print by Google LLC on your smart phone!
