*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."
yes CUPS is installed, i.e. rpm says:
% rpm -qa | grep cups
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
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 ??
