I placed this in the newbie forum as I am a newbie with cups but not with general linux so admins feel free to move this if it is appropriate to do so.
I am running Slackware 13.1 64bit and the cupsd config is the one pretty much the default. I can connect to it from my browser at http://localhost:631
and play around with the options with no problem.
I have been following a previous post on configuring a PDF printer
I am at the point of using lpadmin on the command line to create the pdf printer with the adobe distiller ppd file. When I try to do so it just hangs and eventually I get a connection timeout.
When I do an lpinfo -v I get the same thing. If I try lpinfo -h localhost:631 the request returns immediately with nothing.
Anybody have a clue on what might be happening ?
I tried to create the PDF printer through the cups web ui but I did not get far.
