Make CUPS load at startup


Hi,

Which file do I have to edit to make CUPS load at startup? At the moment I have to type /usr/sbin/cupsd everytime I boot up. I'm running Slackware 10 if it makes any difference.

Thanks

Pete

look in /etc/init.d and see if there is a cups file in there. if there is then make a sym link to it in /etc/rc.d/rc2.d.

simple.

Oh, there might already be a symlink in that folder but it might have a K in front of it. Turn that K into an S and all should be well.

I'm running Slackware 10.1.

Ran ls /etc, and no sign of init.d

I have searched and the only init.d I can find is in /usr/lib/mozzila

Try googling with

cupsd rc.d slackware

I'm not at my slackbox at the moment but I believe the start for cupsd is -

. /etc/rc.d/rc.cups start

Regards

You have to make /etc/rc.d/rc.cupsd executable so it will get run when the /etc/rc.d/ directory scripts are run (only executable scripts get run)
