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

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



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.)

that usually can be fixed by clearing yum cache.

why you removed cups with a --nodeps is beyond my comprehension but the
following might work...

yum clean all
yum install cups
yum update

Try that and see if it installs cups

it is localhost:631
run system-config-printer as an alternative. I think you can understand
it if you can undestand cups web interface.

It seems to me there are only two possibilities:
1. cupsd is not running. What does : ps aux -columns 256 |grep cupsd
return/
2. Your /etc/hosts file does not define a localhost. Use the ip number
of ypur machine rather than localhost.

Somehow you do not have cups installed. I would try:
yum install cups*
again.

You need the following installed:

cups-1.2.12-8.fc7
libgnomecups-0.2.2-8
hal-cups-utils-0.6.13-2.fc7
cups-libs-1.2.12-8.fc7

Different versions for f8 but these rpms.

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

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




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

It seems to know which cups to install but cannot find the rpm.

that usually can be fixed by clearing yum cache.

why you removed cups with a --nodeps is beyond my comprehension but the
following might work...

yum clean all
yum install cups
yum update

Try that and see if it installs cups

I thought removing cups would clear up any faulty connections, it has
worked for

me in the past.

[david@reddwarf burner]$ rpm -qa |grep cups
cups-pdf-2.4.6-3.fc8.i386
apcupsd-std-3.10.18-1.i386
gutenprint-cups-5.0.1-5.fc8.i386
cups-libs-1.3.4-4.fc8.i386
cups-1.3.4-4.fc8.i386
libgnomecups-0.2.2-11.fc8.i386
[david@reddwarf burner]

Cups is now installed I had to do the manual method.

yum updated 31 files but no cups yet
Still not printing.

It seems to me there are only two possibilities:
1. cupsd is not running. What does : ps aux -columns 256 |grep cupsd
return/
2. Your /etc/hosts file does not define a localhost. Use the ip number
of ypur machine rather than localhost.

now back to my earlier thread...

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

Craig
