Print files from any device using Dropbox

If you have a printer attached to a Linux machine, you can easily send print jobs to that printer from another remote computer using Dropbox (see similar solutions for Windows and Mac).

#!/bin/bash
user=brb
PrintQueue="/home/$user/Dropbox/PrintQueue";
IFS=$'\n'
for PrintFile in $(/bin/ls -1 ${PrintQueue}) do
  lpr -r ${PrintQueue}/${PrintFile};
done
-- dropprint.sh ---
