Re: Now that Google Cloud Print is going away how do I get my MX922 to connect to my Chromebox wirel

     Well this is no good.  Clearly there's a hiccup somewhere.  I'm going to go over everything on my side to see if there's something I missed.  I'll post an update if I find something.

Re: Now that Google Cloud Print is going away how do I get my MX922 to connect to my Chromebox wirel

     Okay, I downloaded an Chromebook emulator (CloudReady) to see if there were differences from my Chromebook.  It looks like there were.

 

     I don't know which version you've got but if it's more like the instructions from the mod, which is what the CloudReady emulator was like, then we need to modify the install a little from what I said in my post.

 

     So, follow the mods install instructions and at step 6 it should show a popup named "Add a printer manually" with all the fields mentioned in the mods post.  You'll need to put a printer name ("Canon MX922" or whatever you want to see when you go to print) and the IP address of your printer on your network.  The IP address is important and must be set correctly for things to work.  Check your printer if you don't know it and keep in mind that it can always change depending on how your network is configured so you may need to update this in the future.  Leave Protocol to IPP and Queue to ipp/print.  Click ADD.

 

     At this point you'll get to the "Advanced printer configuration" screen.  You can go back and follow the instructions I gave for this earlier since it's the same from here on.  In short, leave the Manufacturer and Model blank and browse to get PPD file.  ADD the printer and you should be finished.  A new printer should appear with whatever name you gave it ("Canon MX922" or whatever).

 

     The emulator seemed to support more features, like duplex printing, than my actual Chromebook so maybe things will work with these different instructions?

OMG! You are a genius. Works perfectly. How will I ever thank you? It has been so long. Bless you. I could not figure why I could print from the Canon Print App on my phone perfectly but not connect from my Asus CN62 Chromebox. I just ordered a new Asus Chromebox 4. I hope your PPD works from that. Again Thank you so much. You are the best!

Why are you not working for Google? Or Canon, for that matter. None of them knew the answer, and then you came along to save me. I would've had to buy a new printer, and I searched for recommended printers that work with a Chromebox, but I could find no recommendations other than CloudPrint. So again, thank you.

 

Let me know if I can return the favor sometime. I don't know how but like a job reference or something. Let me know.

Hi You,

 

I just wanted you to know I had to reset up the printer on my new Chromebox 4, and it is working perfectly. I am so glad I saved the PPD file to Drive. Works great. Thank you so much!

     I was upset, like I imagine a lot of people were, when Google shut down printing with no real solution offered in its place.  I was also upset when Canon failed to offer some way to print on Chromebooks like they do on Android or at least offer the PPD file.

 

     So I am happy that the file I gave you is working and on all your computers at that.  That makes it worth the effort.

Do you still have that PPD file? I also have the MX922 and my chromebooks won't print... so frustrating.

 

Thanks!
