The Chromebook Test: Living In Google Chrome For A Month (Part 20)


In this part I'm going to update on Printing within Chromium OS.

Printing Update

After originally talking about Printing in Chromium OS in Part 18 I thought I'd do a quick update with my findings after having to Print. Google Drive Documents such as Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides e.t.c print perfectly fine in Chromium but when it comes to printing Pictures they will not print (I'm putting this down to the lack of working Adobe Flash Player in Chromium OS, but without having an official Chromebook running Chrome OS I'm unsure), however if I insert pictures into a Google Docs Document they'll print perfectly fine.


If you don't mind finding work around to things that don't work, or live without them then Chromium OS is a perfectly usable OS, but if you want the full Chromebook experience then there is no substitute to an official Chromebook.
