Description Horst H. von Brand 2007-09-24 13:59:03 EDT
Description of problem:
Starting CUPS gives just a dead cupsd

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cups start
Actual results:
service cups status:
  File ... exists, but cupsd is dead

Expected results:
Running cups

Additional info:
HP LaserJet 1320 connected through USB. It makes no difference if the
permissions on /proc/bus/usb/???/??? are set right (root:lp, 660) or as of boot
(root:root, 600). On i686, no printer connected directly (notebook!) the same
CUPS runs fine.

What does 'rpm -q avahi-compat-libdns_sd' say?
Comment 2 Horst H. von Brand 2007-10-01 09:07:34 EDT
Sorry, the machine was broken, so I could not look into this in the meantime.
After todays updates cups stays up.

cups-1.3.2-3.fc8 (installed Wed 26 Sep 2007 01:57:00 PM CLT)
avahi-compat-libdns_sd-0.6.21-6.fc8 (installed Tue 25 Sep 2007 06:15:42 PM CLT)

But the printer doesn't work. I got its USB connection via lsusb, and set its
group and permissions:

   chmod g+rw /proc/bus/usb/002/005
   chgrp lp /proc/bus/usb/002/005

and confirmed that the permissions are right now. lpq tells me the printer is
not ready, hp-info is happy to tell me about the printer. There are queued jobs,
but nothing gets printed.

You do not need to adjust the permission on the USB device nodes.

What does 'lpstat -t' say, and which queue are you trying to print to?
Comment 4 Horst H. von Brand 2008-01-02 14:20:31 EST
Sorry, had no time to look into this. Now it works fine (cups-1.3.5-1.fc9,
avahi-compat-libdns_sd-0.6.22-4.fc9, machine up-to-date rawhide).
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2008-01-03 06:01:48 EST
Okay, thanks for taking another look.
