python 2.6 or 2.7
pycups (can be tricky on OS X) wich depends on libcups2-dev

Examples - Include/Exclude
Include only the printers “lp” and “2up”:
cloudprint -i lp -i 2up
Exclude all printers whose names start with “GCP-“:
cloudprint -x GCP-
By default, all printers are included. For the include and exclude options, the argument is a regular expression which is matched against the start of the printer name.
For example, to include all printers whose names begin “lp”:
cloudprint -i lp # includes both lp and lp2up
pip install cloudprint or with optional daemon support pip install cloudprint[daemon]
After running cloudprint, verify that the connector successfully installed the cloud printer by visiting http://www.google.com/cloudprint/manage.html.
