I have a problem with the system printing service:
My usb printer used to work just fine, and then I tried to a setup print-server - the whole system hanged up, and after reboot, no matter what I do, I have this message from the GUI settings for printers ...
System printing service not available:
I was trying to restart
cups.socket as advised in :
cups.socket stays "green" until I look up into the GUI settings for printers, which seems to do something that resets
cups.socket again ...
Here is a screenshot of the "best" cups situation:
and that's how it looks like right after I check out the GUI printing settings:
I also tried to reinstall cups, - no luck here either.
Any help/advice is appreciated, as I really don't want to reinstall the system, and chances are everything would crash again after I attempt to setup the print-server ...
