Google Cloud Print Common Print Dialog Backend
This repository hosts the code for the Google Cloud Print Common Print Dialog Backend. This backend manages and provides information about Google Cloud Print printing destinations to the printing dialog.
The Common Printing Dialog project aims to provide a uniform, GUI toolkit independent printing experience on Linux Desktop Environments.
For building the backend
cpdb-libs : Version >= 1.2.0
sudo apt install libglib2.0-dev
sudo apt install librest-dev
sudo apt install libjson-glib-dev
sudo apt install libgoa-1.0-dev
For setting up the GNOME online account
- GNOME Control Center and GNOME Online Accounts sudo apt install gnome-control-center gnome-online-accounts
Build and installation
$ ./autogen.sh $ ./configure $ make $ sudo make install
Following the development and updating
The current source code you find on the OpenPrinting GitHub.
Set up your GNOME online account for Google access by following the first answer to this user question. Then the backend will list your Google Cloud Print printers and your Google Drive in the print dialog as long as you are logged in. For users not setting up their GNOME online account the backend will not show any destination.
The backend is auto-activated when a frontend runs; So no need to run it explicitly.
