How to print in single command/shortcut (like Ctrl+P) without showing the print configuration window?

  • @hakermania This isn't really a duplicate. The OP asks to print from any program without the standard dialog, not to print a PDF directly.

  • @ObsessiveFOSS that's why the 'possible' word exists ;) I thought that via the command the print dialog is not being shown.

    @raghulrnair I suspect there might not be any way to do this in general, but that you could do it for particular applications, or at least those that support programmable macros (like LibreOffice). Are there specific programs you most need this for? Oct 3, 2012 at 10:57

There's only one way to do this, and it's a bit of nuisance. If you start Chromium with this extra option,

chromium-browser --kiosk-printing

you shouldn't get a print dialog when you try to print. If you ever need to access the print dialog, however, you'll have to completely quit Chromium and restart it without that option.
