Description Joachim Backes 2011-08-17 15:31:42 UTC
Description of problem:
Installing F16/alpha/RC4 does not enable cups by default: It must be started manually, but is not started whenn booting. Even if I install system-config-services, start system-config-services and if select then cups, it can't be enabled (like by chkconfig in earlier times).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
No cupsd is running

Expected results:
cupsd is running

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2011-08-17 15:49:51 UTC
Looking at the policy for this:

"If a service does not require configuration to be functional and is not network enabled, it may be enabled by default (but is not required to do so)."

It seems we can enable cups by default because the default configuration is not network enabled.

Enabling cups by default allows automatic configuration of connected USB printers to work again.

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2011-08-17 16:17:04 UTC
I'll enable all three units due to the current policy about that¹, although really cups.service only needs to be enabled for network-facing configurations.

"Since Fedora currently doesn't want any services to do on-demand loading, all socket activated services must autostart."

(this seems to a general issue [for the moment], because a lot of other pkgs have the same problems if trying to update them!)

Tim, what about:
-Requires: %{name}-libs = %{epoch}:%{version}-%{release}
+Requires: %{name}-libs%{?_isa} = %{epoch}:%{version}-%{release}


Comment 9 Tim Waugh 2011-08-19 14:05:27 UTC
Good idea.

Comment 10 Joachim Frieben 2011-08-24 19:41:13 UTC
Issue still persists after updating to 
- cups-1.5.0-5.fc16.x86_64
- systemd-33-2.fc16.x86_64

Comment 11 Tim Waugh 2011-08-25 08:07:35 UTC
Upgrading the package will not enable it (this is intentional).  Remove it and then reinstall it.

This has been a little bit difficult because of the current yum update problems. But by using yumdownloader and rpm I could re-install the cups packages. Now, cups is enabled.

Kind regards

Same problem here. 

I need to enable cups via 
$ sudo service cups start

to enable printing. 

Installed cups:

$ sudo rpm -qi cups

CUPS provides the System V and Berkeley command-line interfaces.

Actually, it's not a big problem for me but it's not nice and might cause troubles to someone else...

Comment 16 Tim Waugh 2011-11-04 10:12:28 UTC
There is a test update which is meant to fix it, mentioned in bug #748841.  Note that in order to test it you must update from a version of CUPS before the conversion to systemd.  To do that, uninstall cups, then install the F-15 cups package.  Finally, apply the test update.

(If you want to just "make it work" without providing test feedback for the update, 'systemctl enable cups.service'.)
