CUPS


I had to install CUPS for my printer for it to be discovered by my distro (Lubuntu 13.04). However when I reboot I have to run "sudo start cups" again. Is this normal or do I need a script to automatically run on reboot?

Thanks,
Jack

Hi,

*buntu uses upstart, so in principle you should be able to set this by editing /etc/init/cups.conf

In Debian the cups executable file is put into /etc/init.d. There's no cups.conf file in sight.

Sure but OP is using *buntu which uses upstart as the init system where as Debian uses sysvinit (or systemd if so desired).

Ubuntu distributions use a system called "upstart" to control/start/stop services like cups. The configuration files for services in upstart are supposed to be in /etc/init/. So I suggested that you look for the file /etc/init/cups.conf and try to modify it. Failing that you should have a look at the upstart documentation, or perhaps post in the ubuntu forum.

Thanks Evo2, I can find the file, but modify it in what way. I'll also check out the Ubuntu forum.

This page will probably tell you all (more than?) you need to know:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingPrintingProblems

It may be as simple as just telling your computer to include CUPS in the list of services. There's a tool to manage services that you can install: BUM.

Thanks David I'll give it a try and report back.
