PACKAGE INSTALL ( Recommended )

The recommended way to install CUPS Cloud Print is using your package manager, please see for installation instructions.


Clone the git repo:

git clone git://

cd CUPS-Cloud-Print/


make install

Follow configuration below.


Run /usr/share/cloudprint-cups/ ( or /usr/local/share/cloudprint-cups/ ) and either allow it to add all Cloud Print printers at once, or say 'N', and add manually:

Add a new printer ( via or usual interface ) as a 'Google Cloud Print' network printer. Select the 'Make' as Google, and 'Model' as Cloud Print. Supply the connection name as a simple URI pointing to the printer you want to setup, you can obtain a list of URIs from /usr/share/cloudprint-cups/ ( or /usr/local/share/cloudprint-cups/ ) :

Print a test page, to confirm it is working.

Assuming the test page prints correctly, installation is complete.


Before commiting to the git repository you should set up the pre-commit hook, this ensures the version numbers in the scripts are updated:

ln -s ../../ .git/hooks/pre-commit

To run unit tests with a coverage report ( output into the htmlcov dir ) run this from within the CUPS Cloud Print directory:

py.test -rfEsxw --cov . --cov-report html --ignore=oauth2client
