start print server and printer by default


Hi all
can you tell me how to get CUPS to start the print server and printer automatically when I start my system.
When I log in and print something I have to go to the print manager and start the server, enter admin mode and start the printer.
Thats fine for me but a load of nonsense for the rest of the family.
You should be able to simply hit the print button and out it comes.

On slackware I had to put a lisa start up script in a config directory but I figure Suse should be more straightforward?

cheers
Kieran

Did you install the printer using YaST? That did it for me in 9.3. If you did perhaps you should go into YaST>System>System Services and make sure CUPS is "enabled".
