Okay, I never blogged this, my bad.

To sum up, about 2.5 weeks ago, I had made Print capable of USB printing.

Here are some screen shots:

I have yet to test the integration with the print device icon. I suppose it will work fine, because
the device icon works just fine for any usb print activity (last i checked with a printer).
For now it works like a charm for any file viewed in Print and which prints to Cups-PDF.

Feedback pleeaaaaaase 😀

p.s. Oh, the Print Setup will have an incarnation as a print dialog, but that’s a poll. 😉


I’m introduced to the sugar community through GSoC, and my project is adding print support to the XO laptops in a teacher controlled environment (which is the primary case) and the secondary would be to see to it that even network printing can be done.

And as for me I am a 3rd year engineering student from Chennai, India. I was always fascinated by this feature:
hit a button and see the object on screen move, it always made me think I was supreme if in a constrained environment.

Though I want to pursue more Mathematical/statistical and pure computer science specific research areas in the future,
User Interfaces and networking have been two things that are very integral to a programmers life. So I would like to learn some awesome things in this area with this project of mine.


Sugarizing the blog

Well folks, random question, do we need a better, more sugary layout?
