After some odd error messages, I've got it working but does Google Chrome need to be both installed and open for Auto Print to work?

It would be good if you could edit the invoice templates then attach a specific template to a specific printer. My thinking is EPOS printers will need different layout to a standard A4 printer.

Google Chrome needs to be installed to install you're classic printer into Google Cloud, once you're printer is installed and working then you can close chrome but will need to leave it installed.

You can manually edit the invoice template via the invoice.css found in admin/view/stylesheet.

I don't currently have plans to implement different templates for different printers.

I found the error you reported earlier and have updated the extension to rectify that. Thanks for heads up.

Hahaha... I deleted that post because I thought it was me. It's been one of those days !!! :choke:

I take it to upgrade, I just upload the content of the 1.08 and overwrite the existing UBER AUTO PRINT files.

Would it be possible to set how many copies of each invoice can be printed? My client does deliveries (fast food takeaway) and needs one for his kitchen (which he then keeps) and one for the driver.

It is not currently possible with the way the extension is setup.

I am out of the office until tomorrow I will investigate it further for you then and see if I can come up with a solution, shouldn't be too much of a problem

@easistudio, I sent you an email with some updated code to be able to print the auto order twice, if you need anything else just let me know.

I see you have updated this on the 20 November 2012 (2 days ago). Is it worth me updating my installation with the new files?

If you switch printers, do you have to un-install then re-install this module again. I am finding I can't just change on the fly in Google Cloud Auto Print module. This is despite the both old and new printers bother showing in the Cloud Print settings in Google Chrome.

What I did notice was the word "fail" on the checkout/success page and I have attached a screenshot below.

The error log contains the below:
2012-11-22 13:48:52 - PHP Warning: include(controller/module/GooglePrint.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/highsecurityprison/www/admin/controller/icache/files/printeradmin.php on line 26
2012-11-22 13:48:52 - PHP Warning: include(): Failed opening 'controller/module/GooglePrint.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/share/php') in /home/highsecurityprison/www/admin/controller/icache/files/printeradmin.php on line 26

@easistudio, I have fixed the two errors you pointed out in the log and screenshot, thanks for that.

As for switching printers on the fly, you should be able to do that inside the module, without any issues.

The way the module is designed is to install (all) your printers inside google cloud print then once you are ready then install the module and select the printer you want to use, if you want to use a different printer you enter the module and select a different printer and hit save.

I'm not sure what you are doing different that's not working, could you explain please ?

I actually fixed it before you replied by uploading the contents of the 1.08 zip and that seemed to solve the problem. However I will download your updated version should I have a repeat of the problems above. Many thanks for your prompt assistance.

Which template does your Auto Print extension use to generate these invoices?

Is it

Code: Select all

admin/view/template/sale/order_invoice.tpl
or

Code: Select all

catalog/view/theme/default/mail/order.tpl

It actually uses both.

For the auto print when a customer makes an order is will use this template.

Code: Select all

catalog/view/theme/default/mail/order.tpl
When you hit the print button from the admin panel it will use this one.

Code: Select all

admin/view/template/sale/order_invoice.tpl

Sorry I didn't explain myself too well. Which template is used for the document that is automatically printed on the printer attached to Google Cloud Print when a customer places an order?

I'm not getting this to work.
Google cloud print is working. I tested it.
The extension is installed. I have the printer from my google account, yet nothing auto prints upon recieving an order.

It also DOES print when we hit "print invoice" which is ok, I guess but the whole point of the extension was order autoprint.

Thanks!!!
