How to use a printer that is not "Cloud Ready" with Google Cloud Print?

How can I use a printer that does not come with Google Cloud Print capability out of the box. I just got a Brother laser printer and installed it on my network, but I can't seem to figure out how to add it to Cloud Print. 


A. First off, you can't use a Chromebook for set up. You need a computer running on MacOS, Windows or Linux with the Chrome browser installed.

B. Go to the Chrome menu -  the three small horizontal lines in the top right of the Chrome browser window.

C. Go to "settings" and click "show advanced settings."

D. Scroll to the Google Cloud Print section and then click on the "Manage" button.

E. Scroll down to "Classic Printers" and click "Add printer."

F. You should get a confirmation if it worked.
