I'm new to Ubuntu, using Ubuntu 16.04.
In System Settings > Hardware > Printers it says
Printing service not available. Start the service on this computer or connect to another server.
The start service button is locked. When I press connect it opens a window where I only have one option: CUPS server: localhost
When I try to connect I get a dialog:
CUPS server error
there was an error during the CUPS operation:'failed to connect to server'.
the printer is samsung scx ,via network. the printer is working, i can even print from the windows dualboot in the same laptop.
sudo service cups restart- no output. localhost:631- not working
dpkg -l cups
