The issue is linked to the language you've set in your Android device. Most probably you set the language as "English (United-States)" and with these settings you only get the American format in you "Paper Size" dropdown. Therefore, if you want to have the ISO size but still keep your phone in English, you just have to set the language of it in "English (...

There's a paid app called ePrint, which I believe works locally to printers attached to a wireless network (printers themselves don't need to be wireless) and doesn't appear to use a cloud service or need a PC in most cases. They have a free ePrint version that you can use to test the functionality before you pay for the full ePrint version. Next there's ...

It is possible! Maybe not in the conventional way, but the easiest way would be to set it up as a Google Cloud Printer and download the Cloud Print app. Also, if you have an Cloudprint ready printer (Epson, Kodak etc) or HP E-Print enabled printer you don't need your pc to be on, for other printers your pc needs to be ON. So you might not be able ...

What you are looking for is usually known as a 'receipt printer'. A quick Google for 'bluetooth receipt printer' turns up a number of models from a variety of manufacturers (quite a few of them are actually battery powered and portable - like you see at car rental places). The big problem here is that Android doesn't really have any concept of local ...

According to SO this should be possible: Can WIFI direct and WIFI station work simultaneously? says it should work if the driver supports multi-role. Explicit for Android: Android running Wifi Lan and Wifi Direct simultaneously describes Simultaneous wifi direct and network wifi is an optional feature for devices. Some devices allow this and some do not, ...

There are several manufacturer independent solutions available as well, using different technologies: Local Network: Bluetooth: Bluetooth Smart Printing Other Networks: Let's Print Droid is mainly intended for network enabled Laser printers8, but also supports Google Cloud printing; PrintBot claims to support almost 3.000 printer models via Wifi; this is ...

Yes it should work with Google Cloud Print. From: https://support.google.com/cloudprint/answer/1686197?rd=1 Log in to your user account on the Windows, Mac, or Linux computer. Open Google Chrome. Click the wrench icon on the browser toolbar. Select Settings. Click the Show advanced settings link. Scroll down to the “Google Cloud Print” section. Click Sign ...

It likely wont. Because two things: 1) Drivers: Android wont know how to operate that printer. All ends here. 2) Even if printer has some Gandalf's spell to be detected by android, AFAIK android doesn't have a mechanism to pass out binary pixel data to printer to print the image.

You can delete cloud printers through this page. I've never been able to tell how defaults occur, though. It seems to mostly do it by what was used last, but randomly it doesn't. Sorry I can't give you a good answer on that part.

I have recently released an Android app based on (a modified) version of Cups4J. Communication is via http/https. The main thing I had to/opted to change from the java library was a dependency on JAXB for XML processing (a. I felt it too heavy b. Android does not have this javax lib and importing it apparently involves repackaging) relying instead on some ...

You only have one WiFi adapter so you only can either connect to a hotspot or host one, not do both at the same time. This is so because WiFi-direct is basically acting as a hotspot for others. With two individual WiFi adapters it would be possible because you would have two individual network connections.

I just was able to figure it out... I just open chrome://flags and resetted it to defaults as I didn't find anything with the word 'print'. And, it worked, I now again am able to print like I could before... Good luck, I think it'll solve your problem too...👍

There are a couple of options out there, here is a good article detailing them - Everything You Need to Know About Printing From your Android Phone or Tablet Personally, I've had some luck with my old printer using an OTG cable and the PrintShare app. It seems to have a good library of drivers. PrintShare - Google Play:

You can now set up CUPS for IPP Everywhere. It should then directly show up in your Android, Chromebooks, and maybe even iPhone printer menus. The other answers are outdated for reasonably new systems: CUPS 1.5+ and Android 4.4+ or an IPP Everywhere printer is required. For Apple AirPrint CUPS 2.2.2 is required. Debugging the functionality can be a bit ...

I have a USB printer attached to a Windows machine and my Linux server sees that over SMB and publishes that via CUPS (be sure to "share...".) For Android, there's Let's Print Droid - complete with a print service so all apps see it. It takes about two minutes to set up.

I have been through a similar struggle, but a Brother HL-2250DN networked printer and Android Pie. Printer is not showing up when searching in Default Print Service. I can see the Brother printer on the network using Fing, and can ping it by its IP address so it isn't a network problem. The Brother supports Internet Protocol Printing (IPP) which is ...

If you can get your hands on the source to rebuild the /system/app/DocumentsUI/DocumentsUI.apk and /system/app/PrintSpooler/PrintSpooler.apk since it relies on the first app, you can manage but any other way won't work for you

It could be that in Android 10 they changed the print icon and moved its location. They also used the same icon several times over. Incredibly stupid, in my opinion. To be sure it is the correct icon you'll need to read the text under the icon. This is also incredibly stupid as many people have become graphically oriented when they use these devices, in my ...

Go to settings- go to applications manager- select all applications- then use the pull down bar and select all applications. Find print spool and select it. Then press clear all data. You should be good to go, and the error in the notification window will be gone.

I think you could try Shared printer app from pelya available at play store. It is a cups installation for android. I hope it works for you.

I had a very similar issue. I don't use Chrome on the desktop (Firefox) but I don't think that is relevant. I am also using Nexus 5 with Android 5.0.1. On my PC on Firefox I could see the Fedex printer listed along side the Google Drive printer but on my Nexus I could only see the Google Drive printer. I fiddled with this for a while but I eventually got ...

Android 4.4 (KitKat) has a built-in printing system. It uses "Cloud Print", which can print to a "Cloud Print ready" printer, or to a normal printer accessible from an Internet-connected PC running Google Chrome. In either case, the target printer doesn't even have to be on the same network, if both the printer and your tablet are connected to Internet. You ...

The method your are describing doesn't seem possible, you are trying to have your photos printed as they arrive to your computer! What you can do is to print data directly from your android device to a printer: Print directly from an Android device with the right Wi-Fi or Bluetooth printer that are available to the device. Print to a printer connected to a ...

It seems there are no native Android CUPS clients, which are free software. The only way that can be found is rather clumsy, via a Debian installation on the Android device -- http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=1148#c41. But using a Debian (or another distro) installation like LilDebi (for example) would definitely require root (in order to ...

I'd go with a print-to-pdf driver on the Windows or Mac end, and set it up to save stuff to a Dropbox. On the Android side, keep Dropsync or equivalent running on the Android device, auto-downloading stuff as it shows up. To get the 'instant', you'll have to set Dropsync up to check frequently, or trigger it manually. Without writing it yourself, you are ...

One idea would be to use the Kindle for Android app on your device and email the documents to your Kindle app using your Send-to-Kindle email address. The missing link is a printer driver that sends print jobs via email. A quick search indicates that several are available. Here's a seemingly popular one for Windows.

The nearest I can think of is - generate a PDF and use that with some PDF reader such as EzPDF Reader ... but... Having said that - Android does not have any facility to support printing (in any shape or form) so you may be out of luck with that! Developers have often struggled with this and resorted to using the option to generate a PDF.. it is an oft-...

Let's Print Droid will print directly to Wifi addressable PCL/Postscript printers. It does not contain drivers for Ink Jets howoever.

I think the idea of needing drivers suggested by the OP needs clarifying. The way I believe things are is that a) if you were trying to communicate directly to a printer, yes you need a driver but b) if you were communicating with a printer say on a LAN server, whether the driver on the LAN can do that job. The task (at least IMO, although apps seem to ...
