I don't have a way to connect my computer to a printer right now so I'm trying to install CUPS; however, I'm failing. I installed it, but when I try to connect I get this error, in my printing settings :
There was an error during the CUPS operation: 'failed to connect to server'.
The troubleshoot says:
The CUPS print spooler does not appear to be running. To correct this, choose System->Administration->Services from the main menu and look for the 'cups' service
Well, I have "System" in my menu but I do not have an "Administration" menu; therefore, I don't have the Services menu either. I get this error when I use terminal
sudo /etc/init.d/cups start [sudo] password for kristenxoxox: Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8) utility, e.g. service cups start initctl: Unknown job: cups Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an Upstart job, you may also use the start(8) utility, e.g. start cups (precise)kristenxoxox@localhost:~$ sudo start cups start: Unknown job: cups (precise)kristenxoxox@localhost:~$ start cups bash: start: command not found (precise)kristenxoxox@localhost:~$ service cups start /usr/bin/service: 123: exec: start: not found
So what do I do?
