So for you it is an entitlement that anything on Linux is working as expected? With this kind of thinking, you are pretty high up there on the list of biggest Linux fanboys.

"Sweetie" is something you use at home when you communicate with your close ones. Go sweetie yourself.

I have always perceived Linux as something that needs an occasional fine-tuning now and then. Especially with a vast and ever increasing amount of hardware around.

Probably everybody understands your frustration that your printer is not working. But it's neither realistic nor just to postulate CUPS project being shut down because of your difficulties or frustration.

Linux is developed for free, that makes a difference, doesn't it? I bet the people working in many projects try to set the standard of everything working out of the box. Or with little fine tuning. For some 95 %.

If you don't like at all finetuning or focusing on configuration for what ever reason, maybe you should really change operating system.

Are you trying to get cups running? I think we should/could rather focus on that, instead of hating cups developers, or something like that.

By the way I don't even like cups either, because it is always installed but I don't even have a printer, so it a waste of resources. Along with ahavi, which i like even less, because I'm not at all into zero configuration paradigm.

People, I'm pretty sure we all know how to evaluate this poster's activities in both this thread and others. What you choose to do with that conclusion is up to you.

As for me? I just updated my ignore list.

Anyway, If you were trying to strike me hard, somehow it didn't work out. You had better called me Backstreet Boys fanboy, for instance. But let's get back to not printing/printing.

I just found out today when I installed lubuntu 16.04, CUPS is no longer installed. It is still installed on ubuntu 16.04 though, which I was grateful for, as I needed it to get my Brother
printer up and running.

Thanks for the tip, I suggest others do the same.

Perhaps, perhaps not.

Pre-CUPS it was more manual effort to setup printing, but if you got it right, it worked. It was frustrating for n00bs though. Never failed to get a printer to run once configured.

CUPS era and there's too much magic black box stuff going on. I've seen some printers that just won't work from CUPS via certain interfaces (but will through others, or will through that interface on a different OS). The knobs to adjust to try and fix it just aren't there. Can be very frustrating for experienced people. Latest example is my home OkiData OL-600 printer (prior issues involved Samsungs and HPs at work). Worked fine from Windows via parallel on that machine. Via CUPS on parallel, it detects and sets up fine, but when you print, the light flashes normally for the normal period of time, then nothing. No printout. Success reported. The limited knobs available do nothing (including changing BIOS settings). Got my hands on a USB to parallel adapter and it works fine that way with CUPS. *shrug*
