This is a pair of holders for tablets of any size (up to 1cm thickness) that can be equipped with magnets for placement on a metallic surface.


Print the "R" and "L" holders, and fit 6mm cylindrical magnets in the holes provided in the back. Alternatively, you can use mounting tape to place the holders on nonmetallic surfaces.

Yeah. I've had a Toshiba Thrive (android 4.0.3) for a couple of years. The wife's hand me down. It would be nice to free up my laptop by using the thrive to print. I really like the touch pad but no one has come up with a way to print from it till now.

Would your version of pronterface run on it?

jaf0 - in reply to Arvin

you can run chrooted ubuntu on the HP touchpad (if that's the tablet you're referring to) courtesy of webOSInternals.


I did some investigation, and Pronterface won't run on Android any time soon due to lack of support for wxWidgets, which the pronterface UI is based upon. But you have a bunch of other options:

1) Native Android applications (like Bot Cubed, maybe there are others). I've seen some screenshots and they are still very immature, but they look promising.

2) Find a way of running Linux natively. Some tablets can be made dual-boot into some flavor of Linux (I now the Asus Transformer can). Unfortunately not all devices allow this. I just did a quick search and it seems that the Thrive is pretty hackable, but I haven't seen a straightforward way to put Linux on it.

3) Run Linux in a chrooted environment under Android. You will need to root the device, but otherwise the installation should be quite straightforward. It is probably a safe but slow option.

Well thanks for looking into it. I never even thought about googling for that.

nice. I have a tablet hand me down from the wife I could use to print with. I'm obviously behind the times. I didn't know there was printing software available for a tablet.

Where did you find it?
