Google Cloud Print on iOS
This project integrates Google's Cloud Print service into Apple's existing AirPrint functionality. For more information, read the blog post.
- Xcode 4.5, which includes the iOS 6 SDK
- A jailbroken device running iOS 6
The first step to build the project is to clone the repository and initialize all of its submodules:
git clone git://github.com/conradev/GoogleCloudPrint.git cd GoogleCloudPrint git submodule update --init -—recursive
Additionally, one header file from the Mountain Lion SDK is required. This is because
NSXPCConnection is public on OS X, but not iOS.
mkdir theos/include/Foundation cp $(xcode-select --print-path)/Platforms/MacOSX.platform/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.8.sdk/System/Library/Frameworks/Foundation.framework/Headers/NSXPCConnection.h theos/include/Foundation/
To build the project, you need only run
To install this on a jailbroken device, some additional tools are needed.
The first tool is
ldid, which is used for fakesigning binaries. Ryan Petrich has a build on his Github mirror:
curl -O http://cloud.github.com/downloads/rpetrich/ldid/ldid.zip unzip ldid.zip mv ldid theos/bin/ rm ldid.zip
To build a Debian package,
fakeroot are required. You can install these from Homebrew:
brew install fakeroot dpkg
To build a package in the project directory, you can run:
and to automatically install this package on your jailbroken device (over SSH), you can run:
make package install THEOS_DEVICE_IP=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
