Here is how to add cloudprint to apt repository resources for your system, letting you install and automatically upgrade with standard tools.

First, add a reference to the cloudprint PPA to your /etc/apt/sources.list file (as root):

deb http://davesteele.github.io/cloudprint-service/repo cloudprintppa main
Add the repository key to your apt key ring:

# wget http://davesteele.github.io/key-366150CE.pub.txt

The packages will be updated with every 'apt-get upgrade'.
