"Chromebooks do not support printing from local printers via USB port. To print from your Chromebooks, you need to connect to the Google Cloud Print service and share a printer:
1.Download and install Google Chrome to the computer where the printer is connected.
2.Open the Google Chrome browser and sign in using the Google account information used to sign in to the Chromebook.
3.Click the menu button on the browser toolbar in the upper right corner of the browser window.
4.Click Settings.
5.Scroll down and click Show advanced settings.
6.Scroll down and, under Google Cloud Print, click Manage.
7.Click Add printers to search for and find accessible printers over the network.
8.Select the printer(s) you wish to add.
•Note:There is also an option to automatically add new printers if a new one is connected in the future.
9.Select the printer(s) that need to be added, then click Add printer(s).
10.A confirmation screen will load showing the printer is ready to go.
11.To see a list of printers that have been added click on Manage your printers.
12.Click print on the Chromebook, then click on the Change button next to where it says destination to select your printer.
13.Under Google Cloud Print click on the printer to print to."
