Ok I did
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.cups
/etc/rc.d/rc.cups start
cups: started scheduler.

Then went to localhost and set up my printer but it still will not print.

Can you tell us what you do to try to print. If you're doing it from an application, check if the output is to the cups spooler.

I just try to print a text file in my home dir,the driver it says it is using is EPSON CL-700 cups+gimp-print v4.2.7 sending it to the printer.this is a different driver than I use in debian,I think I am close just missing something.I haven't booted in over a month,do I need to reboot to get cups started.When my prenter works it will startup when I boot other dist.If I don't hear it starting it won't print.Thanks again david

If you haven't rebooted, try restarting cups:

killall -HUP cupsd
/etc/rc.d/rc.cups restart

Then try a test print.

I tried to add your epson printer in cups, I end with this adress for printer :
usb:/dev/usblp0 but as I haven't your printer I can't configure deeper.

There is a command line to manually add printer to cups (require that you figure out what device in /dev your usb printer use):
/usr/sbin/lpadmin -p Stylus_Color -E -v printer_device -m stcolor.ppd

(Type it as one single line)

try as root :
/usr/sbin/lpadmin -p Stylus_Color2 -E -v /dev/usb/lp0 -m stcolor.ppd

Then from a text editor, try to print and select Stylus_Color2 as printer.
