Manage the google cloud print proxy
service cloudprintd login
Establish login credentials with Cloud Print, then immediately exit. This will prompt for a username and password, if necessary. If the account has two-factor authentication enabled, then an application-specific password must be used. This and all other cloudprintd service commands must be run as root.
service cloudprintd start
Start the cloudprintd service. This will fail if the credentials have not been established. The service will normally start automatically when the computer is running.
service cloudprintd stop
Stop the cloudprintd service. Login credentials are not lost. Normally, the printer will continue to be shown as a valid destination. Any jobs spooled during that time will print when the service is restarted.
service cloudprintd status
Determine whether the service is running or not.
service cloudprintd logout
Delete the login credentials such that the service cannot be restarted without another 'login'.
The cloudprintd services manages the operation of a Google Cloud Print proxy. It makes locally-defined CUPS printers available for use by approved Google users, both locally and remotely.
It is recommended that a dedicated account be used for this service. Printers can be shared from that account to others via the printer management page at https://www.google.com/cloudprint?#printers
