  username  => '',
  password  => 'mypassword',
  connector => 'my_printer',
  server    => 'http://localhost:631',
  • Username: The Google account to which you want to register printers. For enterprises, this is often an account that multiple admins can access rather than a personal account.
  • Password: The password for the account above. If the account requires 2-step verification, you may need to enter an application-specific password.
  • Connector ID: A unique ID for this Cloud Print Connector instance. For example: googleprinters_mtv_building44.
  • Print Server: If you don't have a specific CUPS print server you want to use, leave this field empty and click Enter to use the default print server of the host machine. To use a specific CUPS print server, enter its name in this format: If you need to use multiple CUPS print servers from the same connector, edit the config file manually.
