    Default cups fails to start on boot after upgrade

    OS opensuse 12.3 x64; KDE

    Cups got automatically updated to version 1.5.4-5.11.1 and now does not start on boot. Hence hp-toolbox doesn't start either ( I have an HP printer installed). Prior to the upgrade both cups server and hp-toolbox started on boot.

    I can start cups manually using systemctl and it reports no errors - starts fine, and hp-toolkit also fires up manually without any problems.

    There are no log messages of any kind referring to cups in /var/log/messages.

    Does anyone know why an upgrade of cups should prevent it starting and why there is no mention of it in the log file?

    Thanks

    Thanks for pointing me at the previous discussions on this topic. It doesn't really help me much unfortunately - I still have the issue that cups won't start on boot and I don't understand why - unless the new version I have has a bug - but as it starts perfectly well manually, I can only think that this is a systemd boot issue rather than a cups issue.

    On my system, I only have a locally connected printer - no network printers. Cups service is enabled and nothing else on my system has changed.

    If there are any more inputs then please pass them on.

    Thanks

    I've been through the provided threads again and got a better idea about the issues raised.

    I will wait for a bug fix through the official repos and in the mean time start cups manually on each reboot!!

    Just shows the value of studying people's replies properly!

    Do you have the file /etc/systemd/system/cups.socket with the
    following content?

    code:

    *********************************************

    [Unit]
    Description=CUPS Printing Service Sockets

    [Socket]
    ListenStream=/var/run/cups/cups.sock
    ListenStream=631
    ListenDatagram=0.0.0.0:631
    BindIPv6Only=ipv6-only

    [Install]
    WantedBy=sockets.target

    **********************************************

    If you don't create it (as root) with the above content and then issue
    the following commands:

    code:

    ********************************

    systemctl enable cups.service

    systemctl start cups.service

    ********************************
