greyed out backend options when adding printer (CUPS)
I am trying to add a printer but first I got the message "Unable to retrieve the printer list. Error message received from manager:
Connection to CUPS server failed. Check that the CUPS server is correctly installed and running. Error: connection refused"
Then I tried to continue anyway, and when I open up the KDE printer wizard and get to the 1st screen where it asks you to select a backend, all of the options are greyed out.
I am BRAND new to Linux, and I am trying to figure this out without having to call up the "techie" guy who's on vacation! I figure I have to type something into the Konsole.. ??!! It wasn't greyed out earlier, who knows what happened. It had promped me for a password, but I hadn't realized you had to put in the root at first...and after I realized that after several other attempts at other solutions...the greyed-out thing happened,
Can anyone help??!!
Hi NewConvertLX, welcome to lq. You probably need to start the daemon. Once that's done you'll want to go to the cups web interface. http://localhost:631/admin
Here is some suse specific instruction.
Here is some cups documentation.
