NAME

cloudprint − share CUPS printers with Google Cloud Print

SYNOPSIS

cloudprint [OPTION]...

DESCRIPTION

The cloudprint script makes locally-defined CUPS printers available to a Google account, enabling local or remote printing from such services as the Chrome browser, Chrome OS devices, or Android devices.

This is a lower-level command. Cloud Print services would normally be managed through the cloudprint service.

The cloudprint utility is linked as cloudprintd for the cloudprint-service package.

OPTIONS

−a <account_file>, −−account_file <account_file>

path to Google account ident data (default ~/.cloudprintauth). The format of the file is not public.

−c, −−credentials

establish credentials to the service, then exit.

−d, −−daemon

run in daemon mode.

−f, −−fastpoll

fast poll, if notifications aren’t working.

−i regexp, −−include regexp

include local printers matching regular expression from the start of the printer name.

−l, −−logout

log out of the Google account. This deletes the account identification file, requiring reauthentication the next time cloudprint is run.

path to PID file in daemon mode (default cloudprint.pid).

−v, −−verbose

verbose logging.

−x regexp, −−exclude regexp

exclude local printers matching regular expression from the start of the printer name.

−s sitename, −−sitename sitename

define a site name to be prepended to all printer names.

cloudprint will provide a URL to claim the printer, if credentials have not been established.
