I have a lot of trouble asking questions on Super User, and I just can't get it right. Can someone please help me out?
1) I've been told to edit the question to make it better. I can't do this as it's been deleted. What do I do?
2) I can't comment on the question as it's been deleted. How do I communicate with the other commenters?
3) The comment: "What you'd like to do will be dependent on 1) hardware and OS, 2) your ability, and 3) the printer driver compatibility. Therefore, your question is still too broad as defined by the help center; there is no way for us to definitively answer your question "yes" or "no" without knowing those things. You can reword your question with details and then request it be reopened. – CharlieRB" was left. My question specifically says that I can use any Android or Windows tablet and any browser so I don't see how narrowing it down to a specific tablet model will help.
Yes - my ability is not defined, but my question asks if X is possible, not if I can do X.
This is the question in case you can't see due to it being marked as deleted:
I have a specific computer hardware and software problem that I want to resolve, and it has a yes or no answer. I wish to give a client a tablet (either Windows or Android) and a USB connected printer and I wish to be able to print directly to the printer via the browser on the tablet, over the web.
If I had a PC instead of a tablet I know I can open Chrome with the --kiosk-printing switch to allow a webpage to print to the printer without user interaction on the PC. But to reduce costs and save space, I wish to use a tablet instead of a PC.
Please note that I wish the printer to be connected to the tablet via USB. Again, as a cost saving measure, the printer won't be WiFi, Bluetooth or Ethernet capable.
With all these cost saving measures you may have guessed that I'll be supplying more than one of these setups.
Can someone please tell me if such a system is possible? Can I simply get a tablet, connect a USB printer and open Chrome with the --kiosk-printing switch in the same way as one could on a PC?
Or would I have to go down the route of a native app on the device that will handle the print requests?
Yes, it's possible or No, it's not possible?`
