Google Cloud Print driver released for AmigaOS 4.1
« on: May 12, 2017, 11:26:16 PM »
via unsatisfactory software...

Google Cloud Print allows printing to any printer, no matter where it is located.  This is achieved by connecting the printer to a Google account, from where it can be shared with other accounts.  Connecting a printer to Google Cloud Print requires running some "connector" software on the computer hosting the printer.  For Windows and OS X, this can be Google Chrome, although a standalone connector is also available and additionally works on Linux.  Some new printers have native support for Google Cloud Print and do not need a separate connector.

gcp.device enables the Amiga to print directly to any of these cloud-connected printers, using the PostScript printer driver (Google's preferred format is PDF, but [AmigaOS doesn't] have a PDF printer driver yet).

The only requirement is that the printer is connected to or shared with the Google account you authenticate gcp.device with.

Wow. This is a great app.

As an fyi to everyone, if you have an HP printer with ePrint functionality, login to your HP ePrint account page and you can set your printer up to use Google Cloud printing. It works perfectly on my HP Officejet 8600 Pro using the Amiga postscript printer.
