    Cups Issue
    Submitted By: admin Date: July 28, 2016, 12:18:13 PM Views: 422

    I've discovered a cups eccentricity that you should aware of. For some bizarre reason, the cups development team determined the best approach was to assume that localhost would not actually be the local host, so they coded the default behaviour to ignore the actual system-defined address of localhost and use the ipv6 definition of localhost, even if ipv6 is disabled and the ipv6 localhost address is commented out in your /etc/hosts file. Their reasoning? Well, according to a developer, they figure that a majority of their users actually define localhost as something other than the local host. I think that's complete nonsense that ignores the millions of users who use Linux on their personal computers - this approach is beyond comprehension.

    In any case, to access the cupsd service on an ipv4 local system, you must edit your /etc/cups/cupsd.conf file and change the line that reads "Listen localhost:631" to "Listen", then restart your cupsd service (sudo systemctl restart org.cups.cupsd). To edit /etc/cups/cupsd.conf, either use kate as root (sudo -E kate), or use the nano editor (sudo nano /etc/cups/cupsd.conf). If you're familiar with vi, then I'm sure you already know what to do.

    This isn't a cure-all for a variety of cups-related issues, but it is a good start.

    The cups log files reside in the /var/log/cups directory.
