Thread: Printer enable by default

    Default Printer enable by default

    Is there a way to have my pritner enabled by default on 11.4? Everytime I reboot it doesn't set it to enabled.

    Any help?

    More specs please. Printer, how did you configure it, etc.

    This annoyed me until I got used to it. When you add a printer using YaST it is not enabled. You can go back into
    YaST >> Hardware >> Printer
    select the printer then Edit, wait for all the avilab;e printer definitions to load, then select Enable., OK, OK, Quit

    or as root from a terminal e.g. (my printer is called CLP500):
    Code:
    giulia:~ # lpq
    CLP500 is not ready
    no entries
    giulia:~ # lpadmin -p CLP500 -E
    giulia:~ # lpq
    CLP500 is ready
    no entries
    giulia:~ #
    This has the same effect as enabling with YaST

    eng-int, does doing it in Yast keep it enabled after reboot as well?

    I ended up putting the cupsenable command in my .bashrc as a work around.

    You need to find out why the spooler is being disabled. Unless you tell us what hardware and software you are using, and what is happening (logs), how can you be helped?
