Use Linux to share your printers via Google Cloud Print
First public release of cloudprint-service

Cloudprint-service adds a service to your Linux computer that makes your printers available via Google Cloud Print. This can make the printer persistently available to other users, other devices, or other sites, under your control. No special printer drivers are needed to access the shared print queue.

This should generally work with any distribution which uses .deb files for software installation.
