Title: [SOLVED] Cups service doesn't autostart
Post by: orcrist on November 03, 2013, 06:21:08 PM
I would like to have the cups service start at boot but I cannot figure out how. I have had the packages installed by the vsido-welcome script and I can start the service manually (sudo /etc/init.d/cups start).
Having it enabled by boot-up-manager seems to change nothing.
Thanks in advance.

Check your /etc/network/interfaces and make sure this is in it

Code: [Select]
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

Then restart and see if that resolves it

This is a strange one... but a bug no less... Let me know if it does solve it

Just ran into this myself. A couple of ways to handle it.

sysv-rc and set it with a tick mark for the levels you want
or
sudo update-rc.d cups enable

if you are using systemd then use
systemctl command

Funny, I almost never print anymore but I ran into this the other day on my office machine and thought I was going crazy.

Ill test that out tomorrow statmonkey.

My /etc/network/interfaces is exactly like this. No, the problem is still there.

Thanks! "sudo update-rc.d cups enable" did the trick.
