Run CUPS at startup on Redhat 8


Hi, I'm trying to get CUPS running at startup on Redhat 8. So far I have tried the following commands in both /etc/rc.local and /etc/sysconfig/network: /etc/init.d cups start /etc/init.d/cups restart and cups start cups restart. None of these have worked. I always have to run /etc/init.d cups start at the command prompt to print. Any ideas?

Run this command:

chkconfig --level 5 cups on

if you are using runlevel 5. If you are using runlevel 3 change the 5 to a 3.

Also you can run:

chkconfig --list

to see whats running in each runlevel. Just scroll up a bit and you'll see cups and what runlevels it is set to run at on boot.

Yes I did get it solved. Thanks for your help. There was some major trial and error and I can't tell you exactly how I did it. It should be interesting when I get my new computer and try and set up the printer again. I may call on your services again. ha
