Debian Configuration :: Cups Not Starting In Squeeze For Some Reason?

Jan 19, 2011

I use Sysv-rc-conf to turn on/off services. I initially turned off cups (I'm pretty sure it was on by default) using this method, but now I have turned it back on again, it won't start at boot. I have to start it manually each session. I've probably missed something but here goes anyway,

spoovy@dandelion:/etc/rc5.d$ pwd
spoovy@dandelion:/etc/rc5.d$ ll

Debian Configuration :: CUPS Raw Print Queues Not Working?

Apr 16, 2011

I am trying to set up a print server here on a Squeeze system using the stock debian CUPS package. It seems that since Apple has bought this package, it has caused me nothing but grief. I have set up two different USB printers with raw print queues, and every time I send a print job to either of them, the job disappears into thin air, with no error output. In fact, when I look at the queue, it says the job was completed successfully. I look at the logs, and there is no output indicating any issues. Just for kicks, I reconfigured one of the printers to use a linux driver, and it printed just fine (a little slow, but fine). I set it back to raw, and the jobs disappear again into oblivion.

I have done this many times in the past, and never had any issues -- I even had this very same printer set up that way about a year ago, and it worked great. The only noteworthy thing that seems to have changed is that there are no longer any files called "mime.types" and "mime.convs". It seems they have been replaced by "raw.types" and "raw.convs". The contents of these two files are as follows:

raw.types: application/octet-stream

Debian Configuration :: Wireless Not Working On Squeeze?

Feb 14, 2011

I am moving over to debian from ubuntu, and the latest install is to an acer aspire one netbook, the wireless card seems to be working and I can see available networks and even connect to mine (with WPA encryption) via the gnome network manager, however opening a browser or pinging both local and external machines all fail. its as if the OS does not not know to use the card. The wired works fine.

If memory serves the card is identified by lspci as Atheros AR5007.

There is no reference to wlan0 in etc/network/interfaces.

I do not have that system on now and have to leave for work, but I can post any further info from conf files etc as required when i get home tonight... Just thought I'd post a quick description in case I'm missing something obvious...

Debian Configuration :: ATI RS690 - Get Compiz Working On Squeeze?

Jul 23, 2011

This morning i installed Debian Squeeze and I'm sure it that was a good choice! I got my wireless stick to work (Linksys: Wusb600n v2), installed Chromium, VLC and some other stuff... and ye. I want to get Compiz working on my system! I'm not sure that my current drivers can deal with it, thought. I'm not good at Linux and I don't know what should I install (if there is something) so that I can have get better performance from my video-card. I made HardInfo report of my system. What are my options? How can I make the performance better and, maybe, run Compiz?

Debian :: Cups Not Starting With The Server / Getting Error Unable To Read Configuration File '/etc/cups/cupsd.conf' - Exiting?

Feb 24, 2011

cups does not start with the server. When I try to start from the terminal I get the error message

cupsd: Unable to read configuration file '/etc/cups/cupsd.conf' - exiting!
cupsd: Child exited with status 1!

The log files show nothing. cupsd.conf exists. It is user - root and group - root with permissions set at 0644.

My interpretation of this is that the program is not launching from either boot or terminal for a fundamental reason. I do not quite see what that reason is .

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze X Login Stopped Working - Console Works

Mar 30, 2011

I have been using my system for couple of weeks, and normally update software when the icon is displayed on top bar (gnome). Last couple of days there were updates for X, and I am not sure whether that is the cause of my problem. Once bootup, I get the login screen. When enter the password the login screen keep coming back. there is no error about any password issue, or anything. It keeps prompt me to enter the password.

I could login back the following way.

1. ctrl + alt + F1 , and login with the same username/pwd as for X
2.change to root
3.pkill gdm3
4.exit from root to user privilege
5. startx

The system starts X correctly and no login screen is displayed. I could use the system as usual.

The only thing I did custom to my system was upgrading to the latest kernel (2.6.38) using the source. This was to get support for my hardware, but that was about a month ago. I do not see anything in /var/log (X, demesg etc).

Debian Configuration :: CUPS Configuration In Mac

Nov 3, 2010

I repair and network Canon copiers, and we have a couple of schools here in the US that have added some Mac computers (OS 10.6). The copiers they're running (Canon ImageRunner 5000) have stopped print driver support as of Mac OS 10.5, so I'm attempting to use CUPS as a workaround. Printing isn't an issue normally, but they're using the Canon "Job Accounting" feature to track usage, and that's where my problem lies. This is not a problem for any Windows OS machines, as drivers are available all the way through Windows 7.I have Linux Mint installed on my laptop, and am trying to configure one of the copiers here in the office with CUPS before I hit the field and do it for real, and had no problem installing the copier on my computer. Printing works great, however when I attempt to query printer for default options I get this error.

"Unsupported format 'application/vnd.cups-command'!" Does anyone have an idea of how to get past this point so I can save my company a lot of money by not having to replace machines? Please be aware I'm just a novice using Linux, so any steps to take will have to be spelled out. I can follow directions well, so feel free to post a walkthrough and I'll make the changes right away.

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze D-u - Kernel Configuration Skipped

Jul 6, 2010

I have a set of vm's with stable, testing, and sid to keep track of how things are going. When I did an apt-get dist-upgrade with squeeze last week, things seemed to OK (350 package updates) until the end. It didn't seem to like and / or was confused by a kernel dependency.

I am not too concerned yet. Because these are in vm's, I do a snapshot before any significant change. I can futz around with impunity because I have that backup.

I re-booted, and tried the apt-get dist-upgrade again with same results. I think I also tried apt-get -f install.

So I reverted to the snapshot, and will simply try again in the future. I recall that with lenny as testing, the font-desktop was really screwed up for about a period of 6 weeks.

However, just in case someone else runs into this:

1) a re-boot worked, but the failure of apt-get made me nervous enough to revert.

2) waiting for corrections has seemed to work in the past (with a single exception with a 4-disk SCSI software RAID10 update that failed to re-boot lenny successfully after what seemed to be a minor update -- that was on a real system, not a vm. I haven't gotten back to look at that.)

Debian Configuration :: Can't Shutdown Cups And Avahi-daemon

Nov 15, 2015

I've been using linux for a few months. Recently I have installed debian jessie and I'm learning how to secure my laptop. I have installed

Code: Select allapt-get install sysv-rc-conf

to shutdown few services that I believe I don't need at boot which I found very useful. Among others I have deselected avahi-daemon, cups, cups-browsed, etc. The problem is that, after rebooting, when running:

Code: Select allnetstat -lntup

I still find 'avahi-daemon: r' and 'cupsd' running. I have tried

Code: Select allsystemctl stop cups
systemctl disable cups
systemctl stop avahi-daemon
systemctl disable avahi-daemon

But after rebooting these services are aklways running. I do not know whta to do.

Output of netstat -lntup

Code: Select all[*]Active Internet connections (only servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address           Foreign Address         State       PID/Program name
tcp        0      0 *               LISTEN      250/cupsd

udp        0      0    *                           526/dhclient   

[Code] ....

I'm aware that cups seems to work just for my printer but I do not understand why I can't just disable it.

Debian Configuration :: CUPS And Multiple Printer IP Numbers?

May 29, 2011

Our Canon MX340 printer is WiFi connected using an IP address. This works well except that whenever the printer is turned off (for any reason) it chooses another IP next time it is turned on. As near as I can tell, it has two IP numbers: and Is it possible to enter both in the CUPS configuration so that CUPS will find the printer whichever number it is using?

Debian Configuration :: TightVNC Configuration On The Squeeze?

Feb 8, 2011

I recently just installed Squeeze on an ia64 system and was having some troubles with running VNC.I get the following error, more specifically for some reason I get a malloc - memory corruption error:

Xtightvnc(9165): unaligned access to 0x60000000001ea06c, ip=0x4000000000268280

Xtightvnc(9165): unaligned access to 0x60000000001ea084, ip=0x4000000000268280


After display all the code above, it just stops. The port 5901 is still closed - if it runs properly, would it open automatically?Is there something that is incompatible? Or am I missing some system configuration component?

Debian Configuration :: Sending Commands To The Printer Besides The CUPS System?

Nov 30, 2010

reason my Debian 5 system will not stop printing blank pages. I've got the CUPS system installed, and I've gone to the control page and canceled everything. I've also turned the printer off and restarted it several times. Every time it comes back online it starts printing blank pages again. My paper does not need to be heat treated. It's fine as it is. So, how to I stop this waste of electricity and printer MTBF? What else might be sending commands to the printer besides the CUPS system?

Debian Configuration :: Setting Up A CUPS/Samba Shared Network Printer?

Aug 19, 2010

how to get clients connecting to an office printer. during a migration from windows server to debian/samba.

We have:

5 windows XP machines one Windows Server 2003 machine, PDC of the old domain One debian Samba PDC (of TEST domain)/print server (with CUPS installeD) running in a virtual machine hosted by the windows server One Toshiba eStudio 3511 printer

Using the CUPS control panel, I've been able to autodetect and add the printer, and it appears as an available share in SWAT for samba. However, the driver isn't perfect. CUPS could only supply drivers for the 3510c, not the 3511.

However, clients on the TEST domain are unable to access it. Doing so gives an error about a local policy preventing a connection to the print queue. I've tried googling this error and the fix that comes up in every result about changing a point and print policy setting, does not work.

however, I've been able to work around the issue. by first logging in as local administrator, navigating to the domain server, then inputting the domain root account credentials at the prompt. That allows me to attempt to connect to printers, but with a different error

"The server for the printer does not have the correct driver installed...."

I very strongly suspect that the 3510 driver actually will work, but it's just not being shared properly. The printer driver share folder is /var/lib/samba/printers, and that directory contains only a few empty subfolders. CUPS did not place the driver there as I would expect, and that is where clients are looking for it.

The thing is, I have no idea where CUPS DID put the driver.

On the old domain, the printer uses drivers for es4511, and looking on the toshiba site, this seems to be what they provide. The Toshiba Site provides a huge variety of drivers, including several windows ones, a universal driver, and a CUPS PPD. Cups asks for an optional PPD during install and I tried supplying that. It said installed successfully, but didn't change anything.

I've tried pasting the windows drivers into /var/lib/samba/printers/W32X86 too, and likewise with other drivers from toshiba's site. but this doesn't change anything either, so I'm at a bit of a loss.

how to install/setup drivers on a samba PDC, for windows machines?

Also relevant, my smb.conf:
anyone see any possible causes of problems?
# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from UNKNOWN ()
# Date: 2010/08/19 13:03:07

Debian :: CUPS Stopped Working With HP LaserJet 4 Plus

Jun 22, 2010

My printer is a HP laserjet 4 Plus. It used to work with the gutenprint drivers pretty much since always.I don't know when it broke, because I don't use it that often. I have tried with the generic postscript driver, with the gutenprint driver, with the j4dith driver and with the hplib driver. Basically, what happens is that all jobs never finish processing in the queue. On the other hand cups-pdf still works.

Debian Configuration :: Using Tor In Squeeze?

Aug 28, 2011

When I activate Tor in Iceweasel, it forbids me access to the internet completely. Even attempting Google results in "Iceweasel is configured to use proxy server that is refusing connection".

I have seen this in Lenny, too - it was caused by activating Tor without having installed privoxy. I installed privoxy and everything was okay. In Squeeze, Tor is using polipo. Polipo is installed and running. I have not played with settings of polipo or Tor, the configuration is the same as it was after installation.

What can be wrong? I am a rather an user than a networking guru. I am connected to internet by means of DHCP, no local lans, no special routings, no additional proxies. I have already tired to reinstall polipo.

Debian Configuration :: NTFS In Squeeze?

Got a problem mounting my Windows partition in Squeeze. It keeps refusing to mount it for me in Dolphin. I am a member of the disk and fuse groups, /dev/fuse is owned by root:fuse, and /sbin/mount.ntfs points to /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g, which in turn points to the ntfs-3g executable. I kind of need this ASAP. I am supposed to be finishing with this machine in 35min, and I am dead in the water without the ability to copy some files from the Squeeze ext4 partition over.

Debian Configuration :: Kernel BUG In Squeeze 2.6.32-5-686 ?

Oct 21, 2010

I installed Debian Squeeze from a net install to a raid 1 array. I have been having a lot of troubles related to being able to write to one or more of the mounted drives - even touch gives me errors.

The most interesting line from dmesg is:

Here is the full output from dmesg:

I found a thread that indicated that this bug was fixed in the next kernel version: 2.6.32-6. I am willing to upgrade the kernel to get rid of my problems. Is a squeeze kernel at 2.6.32-6 or higher available? If so, where? I have not compiled my own kernel, and am not very interested in getting into that.

Debian :: Trying Out Squeeze / Configuration Could Not Be Loaded

Dec 14, 2010

A couple days ago I installed Debian Lenny (netinst) to my friend's laptop, a IBM Thinkpad T23. Got a black screen after gdm loaded and the laptop seemed frozen. Decided to upgrade to squeeze. I edited the apt sources file and changed all the instances of lenny to squeeze, and then upgraded.Had the same display problem, but found a web site that suggested disabling acpi. So I did that, got the sound working, (needed cs46xx firmware), and all seems to be running fine.I get some weird udev messages at boot time, but I have a feeling that's due to how I upgraded. I can't copy and paste since the messages aren't in my system log. If anybody wants more information about it, I can supply it. pgrep shows two instances of udev running so it appears the messages are only warnings.When upgrading to squeeze, I used debian mirror links. Earlier today I switched to Debian's official US repo URLs and had to upgrade about 250 packages after reloading package data.

Now, when I click on System -> Administration -> Time and Date.After a couple seconds I get a dialog box that says "The configuration data could not be loaded" in bold black letters. Underneath that in smaller letters, "You are not allowed to access the system configuration" I receive that same error when accessing "services" and "users and groups."But I can access the synaptic package manager and update manager from the administration submenu.
