cups and slackware 9


my last post was about that i could't print through a smb printer. i discovered that cups is not running. i can't find how to run that, and i don't find any packages on slackware.org

i can see directories with cups, but is cups really installed on slackware? i did a full install. but since i can't find any packagaes on slackware.org it might not be included.

please help

CUPS

deNiro:

Cups is included in the /extra packages, which you probably do not have installed by default. Grab the cups package from one of the slackware mirror sites and install it.

After restarting, cups will be running. Check it with your browser at 'localhost:631'.

Good luck,
Charlie

cups-1.1.19-i386-1

Also when you install cups make sure that it is cups-1.1.19-i386-1 as the x.18 version has security issues. Once you have it installed it should start automatically. If it does not then check out /etc/rc.d/ and run ./rc.cups. Also if you don't want it to start automatically then change the permissions on the rc.cups to NOT be executable. Once you have it installed start Netscape and CTRL+SHIFT+L and typing in HTTP://localhost:631 and that will bring up the configuration page for cups. It will ask you for a username and password, it will be the same as root.

Regards,

go into your cups directory ( mines was the default: /usr/lib/cups ) then go to the backend directory and do a symbolic link to smbspool.

ln -s /usr/bin/smbspool smb
