hp desktop1000 will not print from samsung google chrome book

I just purchased a Samsung Google Chrome book and cannot get it to print to my HP1000 printer. Any ideas?  I cannot connect it directly to my laptop. It must be done wirelessly. HELP

Re: hp desktop1000 will not print from samsung google chrome book

Hi there, in order to print from your Chromebook to your printer you will need to register it on the Google Cloud Print service. This is because Chromebooks are not designed to have software installed on them (in the way you would install a software driver for a printer on a Windows or Mac machine). Instead they are designed to run applications from the Cloud. The model of printer you have is considered a "Classic" printer by the Google CLoud Print service as it does not have its own internet connection. Here's a link from Google on how to connect your classic printer with Google Cloud Print

 

Hope this information helps but post back if you're having trouble.
