CUPS problems with brother dcp7010 in lenny


installed lenny and am trying to install brother dcp7010 again:

1) i can't start CUPS server with /etc/init.d/cups restart
"file not found", there is a cups@ link in /etc/init.d.

2) when i install dcp7010 cupswrapper
dpkg -i cupswrapperDCP7010-2.0.1-2.i386.de
it ends with
" lpinfo: Verbindung zum Server nicht möglich: Verbindungsaufbau abgelehnt
lpadmin: Verbindung zum Server nicht möglich: Verbindungsaufbau abgelehnt"
(connection to server not possible, refused)

3)http://localhost:631 doesn't work.

4)foomatic-gui can't find the installed dcp7010 lpr-driver
brdcp7010lpr-2.0.1-1.i386.deb, (a couple of days ago it did)

This is frustrating because it worked in etch and worked for awhile in lenny. The dcp7010-scanner does work.

Hello,

Where does the cups link point to? Can you confirm that the cups server is not running with
Code:
ps -ef | grep cups
and where it is installed with:
Code:
whereis cups
All the times I installed CUPS on Debian servers, the startup script got created without problems in /etc/init.d/. If you have CUPS installed in the same (default) place I'd be happy to post the startup script here if that helps you out.

Kind regards,

Eric

c# ls -l /etc/init.d/cups
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 21. Jan 09:52 /etc/init.d/cups -> /etc/init.d/cupsys

but

# li /etc/init.d/cupsys
ls: Zugriff auf /etc/init.d/cupsys nicht möglich: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
(no such file)

i did the link, it worked in etch and at first in lenny.

# ps -ef | grep cups
root 3303 3239 0 13:52 pts/1 00:00:00 grep cups

c# whereis cups
cups: /etc/cups /usr/lib/cups /usr/include/cups /usr/share/cups

Ok, please post your script, Eric. Maybe i should reinstall CUPS? I tried, but no effect. CUPS is screwed up somehow...

On other PC here, same lenny install, CUPS seems to be ok.

Hello,

Did you remove CUPS before trying the install again? That would be the cleanest option. Anyway, I'm attaching my cups init script. Copy it to your server, rename it to delete the txt extension, and set the permissions like this:
Code:
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root  2526 2009-05-25 16:43 cups
Then try to start CUPS using the startup script. If that doesn't work, uninstall CUPS (with the purge option to delete all configs) and try reinstalling from scratch.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

Sorry, I was busy for some time at work and didn't have the possibility to answer. At what point are you now? Were you able to uninstall CUPS? For installing just:
Code:
apt-get install cups
should do the trick. Apt should take care of all dependencies.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hello,

It's always good practice to stick with one package manager to avoid confusion. I always use apt. If you're used to working with aptitude then you should use it also to install your applications. That way you'll always have package manager that's aware of everything. If you switch between them, tracks might get lost, resulting in the strangest errors.

Great if you got it working, let's hope all functions are available. I hope that by one step further you don't mean more down into the abyss

Kind regards,

Eric

just added printer thru the CUPS-GUI and scanner still works.

You're right, i like aptitude the best, but in the hectic...

One last question, how does one "thank" someone here?
