I'm pulling Chrome updates through autopkg and lately, there has been quite a few. I've also noticed that everytime there is an update, our default pape rsize in the Google Chrome print dialog resets to A4. We only use Letter size. Since paper size is not immediately available (you have to click on "More settings" to see it), most of my users miss it and end up holding the printer up because it produces an error.
I've set default paper size for the system through Printers and Scanners preferences but Chrome seems to ignore this. Is there a way to set default paper size for Google Chrome using a flag or command line (defaults)? Also, I know I can disable the Google Chrome print dialog but I'd rather just set the paper size if it's possible.
We solved this in our labs by deploying a config profile that forces Chrome to use the OS's print dialog box. We implemented this back around Chrome v37 so there might be a better/different way to do this but FWIW, here's what we did:
Create a computer-level profile with a Custom Settings payload.
Preference Domain: com.google.Chrome
@EliasG You create a com.google.Chrome plist with the setting in question:
defaults write ~/Downloads/com.googleChrome DisablePrintPreview -bool TRUE
Then you upload it from your Downloads folder to Jamf Pro with the Custom Settings payload as I mentioned in my previous post.
