With some help both here and by searching to the ends of the internet I was able to get google chrome 31 running and setup google cloud print here in Puppy Linux. There is one thing I have not managed yet and I have a feeling the answer is right under my nose but cannot seem to find it. How can I setup google chrome as a background service? Right now if I want to cloud print from another device the chrome browser has to be open in puppy linux for it to work. Which is not a real big deal but I know it can run the services in the background and be ready to go on boot up. Any ideas?

Do you need Chrome to be launched automatically on every boot?

If, yes, take a look at the README.txt in /root/Startup

Thanks that will give me somewhere to start on this. I will be trying first to find a way to just launch the chrome services. I have had it that way on some of the other linux installs and got spoiled on it and was looking for a way to do that here in Puppy Linux as well. The way it works is the chrome services are launched in the back ground without requiring the browser window opened which enables me to cloud print anytime the computer is running without having to open the chrome browser. I know really lazy huh.

Subject description: Command for chrome services and faster chrome boot
 

Thanks for all the help. The script you sent me the link to has some interesting features. For now I found a command to launch chrome as a service using this command in a script: google-chrome --type=service

I also found a no windows command which can be added to a script to make chrome open quicker when you do need the full browser. My system is really old and this next command speeded the Chrome browser opening time by 15 seconds
google-chrome --type=no window

Cant wait to get puppy loaded onto my main computer.
