In my case I'm using the unstable version of chrome. I created a script (start_cloud_print) that has the following information:
ps -ef | grep cloud-print | grep -v grep > /dev/null 2>&1
if [ "$?" -eq "1" ]
--type=service --enable-cloud-print-proxy --no-service-autorun --noerrdialogs --user-data-dir=/usr/local/etc/googlecloudprint/ &
Since I run multiple terminal windows I only want my this to run once. Then I have .bashrc exec start_cloud_print. In this way I
ensure that my cloud printer get's started anytime I'm logged into my computer. I suppose I could write a systemd startup script
