Starting CUPS


When I installed Slackware 9.1 I told it not to install CUPS. I just installed it but I'm not sure how to start it. Anyone know?

Edit: I've tried going to http://localhost:631/admin but the daemon isn't running, I need to start it.

slackware 9.1 comes with cups.

you will want to run it by becoming root and typing /usr/sbin/cupsd to start the daemon

then go to http://localhost:631/admin

you will need to log in as root on the site

once you have the printer installed edit /etc/rc.d/rc.local and include the line : /usr/sbin/cupsd

this will start the daemon everytime you log in

hope this helps. let me know when you get it set up.

just in case cupsd didn't install under /usr/sbin you can do a quick search with find file...enter cupsd and see where it is located.

then you want to run it as root and you are good to go

You don't have to put it in local. It is one of the services that you can turn on and off with pkgtool, or just make the rc.cups executable in /etc/rc.d directory.

A note, if you installed lprng as well, you have to relink your lpr(*) to lpr-cups and so on. go to /usr/bin and ls -l lp* to see what it is linked too.
Anyway, this is the next step after you get cups up and running.
