CUPS problem: IPP request failed for unknow reason
*Sigh* this is a difficult one, I hope someone else knows more than me.
Since I've updated CUPS via yum a few weeks ago, I am no more able to print - this is under Fedora Core 4.
Finally desperately I upgraded to Fedora Core 5 (I'll save you the details :)).
But now I'm still not able.
Always the same message when trying to configure the printer, restarting the print manager, etc:
"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: the IPP request failed for an unknown reason."
Remark 1: yes CUPS is installed, i.e. rpm says:
% rpm -qa | grep cups
Remark 2: yes the CUPS server is running, at least ps says:
% ps -Af | grep cups
root 2199 1 0 09:59 ? 00:00:00 cupsd
root 3269 1 0 10:00 ? 00:00:00 cups-config-daemon
Remark 3: no I can't administer printers via web-interface, even when logged in as root surfing to "localhost:631" tells me: "403 Forbidden". And my firewall is completely disabled.
The etc/cups/cupsd.conf-file is ending with these lines:
# Lines below are automatically generated - DO NOT EDIT
Deny From All
Allow From 127.0.0.1
BrowseAllow from @LOCAL
And so... help!! Anyone able to help me out of this labyrint ??
Yes, I had the same problem too. It is a bug in SELinux (which is a pain in the ass, BTW).
To confirm that:
Sorry, "rccups" is an alias in my system. The default command is "service cups restart".
[QUOTE=marozsas]Yes, I had the same problem too. It is a bug in SELinux (which is a pain in the ass, BTW).
To confirm that:
Are your packages updated ?
May be some bug when upgrading for FC4 to FC5. Mine was a fresh install.
Try to remove the packages cups, cups-libs and hal-cups-utils and re-install the same packages again.
I'm afraid it will take days to get it back ok again.
Asking yum to remove cups, it tells me:
Nope, even that didn't do it
I finally took a deep breath and uninstalled all 38 packages.
And reinstalled CUPS.
Only to find... it's still giving the *same* error !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyone who can help, or point to where I should find help???
