Printing direct to Online Services in Ubuntu

Registered by dobey on 2011-04-28

In at least the US, there are many services where you can print your photos directly to them for pick-up in store, or delivery via post. These services are usable from Windows systems by the user installing a program which provides a new option and additional UI in the printing dialogs. Some of these services also support other document formats, as well.

It would be nice if we could provide a similar, and standard interface, for performing the same actions, in Ubuntu. This may require altering some core parts of the printing infrastructure in GTK+ and Qt, and providing an extension for using the services.
