I have been working on a quick printer setup for my users who are not enrolled in the jss (contractors who byod). Basically I converted the driver installer to source in compser, then in the postinstall script added an lpadmin command to add the printer, and added a command to make chrome use the system print dialogue.
The command is:
defaults write com.google.Chrome DisablePrintPreview -boolean true
when entered into terminal it works, but when run in a script it isn't taking

It probably sets it in user space, the script will set it globaly which might not be something Chrome looks at.
You can either have the script defaults command reference the plist for each user directly /Users/$USER/Library/Preferences/com.google.Chrome.plist or use custom configuration profile to enforce the setting.

Do it via Configuration Profile and Custom Settings
