    You can enable USB sharing in Linux via Settings - does that not work?

    Yes, but the Linux share does not detect USB from the printer.

    On Linux, typing "lsusb" I don't see USB.

    The USB may not be shared automagically - you can adjust USB sharing in the settings menu, I believe under the Linux menu.
    Do any options show up there for you?

    You can see that Chrome does not offer me to share USB from my printer (Sorry but the message is in French).

    Hi again,

     

    I think we have a fix for usb printer detection/redirection in v76.1 which may help. 

    Do you have an official Chromebook to compare behavior to? If this machine works on Chrome OS but not on CloudReady (either for printing or redirection or both), there's a good chance v76 will fix it.

    Oh!

     

    Try enabling this flag:

    chrome://flags/#crostini-usb-allow-unsupported

    Hello,
    Yes I already activated the flag:chrome://flags/#crostini-usb-allow-unsupported
    but the result is the same: no detection.
    So I'm going to wait for version 76 hoping it corrects the problem.
    I will also try a chromebook to find out if the problem comes from cloudready.

    If it doesn't work in Chrome OS, you can bring your problem up with Google Product forums or file a bug to the Chromium bug tracker.
