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.json).
-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.
-p <pid_file>, --pidfile <pid_file>
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.
--syslog-address SYSLOG_ADDRESS
syslog address to use in daemon mode (default stdout).
-h, --help
display help
cloudprint will provide a URL to claim the printer, if credentials have not been established.
