Thread: Cups http://localhost:631/admin gone missing

  1. #1

    Default Cups http://localhost:631/admin gone missing

    I am having to reinstall the drivers for my Brother MFC-j430w and it's not going so well. When i go to http://localhost:631/admin it does not load and says the page is unavailable. I don't know what happened or what i may have done. It just started doing it after several times of loading the page successfully. If someone could help me i would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

    Check if the CUPS service is running?
    Code:
    # systemctl status cups.service
    If not, enable it
    Code:
    # systemctl enable cups.service
    then try the web interface again.

    I didn't get any ouput. I also did not see it listed in the services manager. Not even after running the code to start it.

    1. Which openSUSE version do you have installed?
    2. The enable command won't produce any output, but did that status query not produce output?
    3. Is the cupsd daemon running? Check with
    Code:
    ps -A|grep cupsd

    I have Tumbleweed installed. No output from the status query. Also no output from that last code as well.

    Okay, then you might want to check that you even have CUPS installed
    Code:
    # rpm -qa|grep cups

    I'm just about out of ideas here (and I'm tired). I recall a reading a thread where a corrupted or missing /etc/cups/cupsd.conf file was to blame. Check that yours is okay. If in doubt, copy over the 'cupsd.conf.default' to 'cupsd.conf'
    BTW, this should return useful output
    Code:
    cupsd -t

    No luck...

    Code:
    ron@linux-qe38:~> cupsd -tIf 'cupsd' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
        cnf cupsd
    Maybe i can just try reinstalling cups. I'm tired of messing with it for tonight anyways...Thanks for you help :-)

    That command will have failed because you were not root and it's not in your user's path anyway
