Reversing what I have said before now you can get the equivalent of
localhost:631 by running system-config-printer.
or use lpoptions and lpadmin.

I've done a "rpm -e --nodeps cups" then "yum install cups" and got to
the point where
thunderbird and firefox send a print request to my HP PSC 2110 but is
not printed out.

I still cannot open "localhost 631" 'Unable to connect'.

you are running firefox on the same computer that has the printer
attached to it right?

how about...

/sbin/service cups status

tail -n 20 /var/log/cups/error.log

OK, you need to register and then start cups...

/sbin/chkconfig cups on
/sbin/service cups start

Then you will have to see if printer is still set up...probably easiest
to just use 'Administration' => 'Printing'

set up printer, apply changes, click 'Print Test Page'

until you get a test page to print, don't bother with any other program.
Fix the settings

It looks like the OP is missing something. Even if cups is not
enabled with chkconfig, the service command should still work. It
looks like /etc/init.d/cups script is missing. (I have never checked
to see what happens if the <service> script is there, but not
executable.)

sudo rpm -qa|grep cups

I know - I am at a loss. I saw where the OP re-installed the cups
rpm, so I don't know why the script is missing. I was hoping you
would have some ideas.

I asked for verification that cups was installed (and which packages)
and then to verify the base cups package...seemed logical.
