Localhost refuses to print...


Ok one day all is well..
Until today... I have searched myself out of options and have not been able to fix this...

HELP...

Here we go.

My box stopped printing for no reason.. Cups works fine for bth the local printer and remote (test pages print ok).
Yet I am not able to print from anything in gnome or from the command line...

Here is my error ......
Status Information, attempt 1 of 3:
sending job 'root@kitty+192' to HPv40@localhost
connecting to 'localhost', attempt 1
cannot open connection to localhost - Connection refused
Make sure the remote host supports the LPD protocol
Waiting 10 seconds before retry
Status Information, attempt 2 of 3:
sending job 'root@kitty+192' to HPv40@localhost
connecting to 'localhost', attempt 1
cannot open connection to localhost - Connection refused
Make sure the remote host supports the LPD protocol

I tried this root thinking maybe it was a permission break for my user... NOPE
Printing was fine last week.

Hi,
I think that you're using the lpr-lpd program instead of the lpr-cups. Run
cd /usr/bin
ls -l lpr
ls -l lpq

See if lpr is pointing to /usr/bin/lpr-cups. The easy way to work around this is to reinstall the cups package.

Thanks for the answer.. But I fixed this long ago.
Just a matter of changing some syn links between lpr and cups
