Using Google Cloud Print on Linux

Using Google Cloud Print on Linux

To use Google Cloud Print on Linux you first need to link your University Google account via Gnome Online. 

Linking your University Google Account to Gnome Online: 

1. Log in to your Linux client.

2. Go to your Linux client's OS Settings.

3. Select Online Accounts.

4. Under Online Accounts - Connect to your data in the cloud select Google.

5. In the Google Account pop-up window enter your @cam e-mail address. 

6. At the Raven login screen, enter your CRSid and Raven password and click Login.

7. Accept Gnome's request to access your Google Account by clicking Allow.

8. Select which options you wish to allow Gnome to access. Making sure you allow Printers as without it, Google Cloud Print won't work.

9. Close all pop-up windows.

How to print

Open any application within your Linux client. To print, follow the normal procedure for printing within the application. DS-Print_FindMe should now be listed under your available printers.

Once you have sent a print job to DS-Print_FindMe you can release it using your University card, or CRSid and Raven password, at one of the many MFDs located around the University that use Common Balance print credit. The print job will be charged for at the institution's standard print rate.

A video tutorial of the procedure can be found below:
