printing on Raspberry pi


Hello,

I have installed CUPS on PI and trying to set-up on network printers. Question is:
When CUPS is installed, what directory is used.

Also, When I restart CUPS to complete the install, command line says CUPS restated and OK. I still have to select printers and complete the install. How do I do that?

In general cups can be configured using its web interface by pointing your browser at port 631. To provide more specific help it would be useful to know what linux distribution you are running and what method you used to install cups.

printing on raspberry pi

Hello,

Thank you for the response.

Distribution is, Debian Rasbian Wheezy 2012.12

Method used to install CUPS

sudo apt-get install cups This took a while. Then

sudo usermod -a -G lpadmin pi Then

sudo /etc/init.d/cups restart This did not work. Then found and tried this

sudo service cups restrart This worked and cups started

Then I went to google home page using Midori and typed

/[my pi's IP]:631 The message that came back basically said "unknown"


This morning, I went into Leafpad and clicked print. The print menu displayed printers that are on the network.

It looks like the PI is now identifying network printers which is what I need. Although I don't understand my problems yesterday.
