Chrome has its custom feature-limited print dialogue which i always skip in order to use the system print dialogue.

Is it possible to make the system print dialogue default?

You could use Control+Shift+P.

Chrome also supports a --disable-print-preview mode where the dialogue is completely removed.

google-chrome --disable-print-preview

To persist this, you'll need to hack around the existing launcher. The easiest way is with alacarte (the menu editor). Just add the flag before the %U so you're left with something like this as the command:

/usr/bin/google-chrome --disable-print-preview %U
  • Wow, that was easy :) I'll just use that second shortcut from now on. Thanks! Mar 14, 2014 at 13:09
  • To get this option always active for chromium installed via snap you should put it into ~/.chromium-browser.init as described in askubuntu.com/a/1215010/19753 Oct 17, 2021 at 3:04
