How to start CUPS on Debian?


How do I start cups on Debian?

I have installed Debian Linux.

There is a file /etc/init.d/cupsys
that I wonder if I am going to use.

Now what do I do?

(This is my first question in this forum)

If you installed cupsys, you can see if it's already started by typing ps aux | grep cups at a command line.

Or open a web browser and type localhost:631 which should prompt you for the root name and password (or your username and password if you added yourself to the "lpadmin" group).

But yes, the /etc/init.d directory is where you start/stop/restart services. So to start it, you would type as root /etc/init.d/cupsys start.
