Thread: CUPS starting automatically ?

  1. #1

    Default CUPS starting automatically ?

    openSUSE 12.3

    Whenever I have to reboot, or turn my PC off and back on, I always have to restart CUPS manually and I would like to make that more automatic.
    I don't know how to do that nor do I know why it does not do it anyway.

    My way of starting CUPS is to go into Yast and try and print a test page. Yast will then ask me if I want to start CUPS.
    There has to be a better way.

    thanks
    openSUSE 13.2

    This should do the job:
    Code:
    su -c 'systemctl enable cups.service'
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    ° Perfection is not gonna happen. No way.

    Thank you for this.

    However is there a way to automate this ?
    Is there a script file that runs at startup where I can embed this code ?
    Hmmm, I wonder if Google will tell me.

    You only need to run this ONCE.
    It tells the system to start cups.service at boot automatically.

    You can do the same thing (i.e. Enable/Disable cups and other services) in YaST->System->Services Manager, btw.

    There has been a package update about this issue. I saw it yesterday.
