Greets to all.
I'm trying to setup my first printer using cups, and from what I've read, cups can be administered by navigating to http://localhost:631
. Unfortunately, everytime I try this, my browser (Konqueror) returns:
An error occurred while loading http://localhost:631:
Connection to host localhost is broken.
I've also tried using the add printer control within YaST to no avail, when attempting to detect the printer YaST just hangs at around the 50% complete mark and doesn't budge. At this point, system performance is degraded severely.
I've also checked that I have cups installed properly using rpm -qa | grep cups which returns:
I also have the hplip software installed (for a hp printer) which I checked with rpm -qa | grep hp which returns:
Any ideas on this one? The fact that I can't even access the cups admin through the browser is quite a concern, as every other online source documenting printer setup using cups assumes that you are able to access cups admin at http://localhost:631
