I just tried those links you mentioned, and in each case all the browser would display was the message "NOT FOUND" in big, bold letters, and yet I can get to everything else on the internet without any problem. But for what it's worth, the code you suggested DOES start CUPS on my computer.

I tried to manually activate CUPS using Super VASM, but when Firefox started it displayed the message "NOT FOUND" in big bold letters.

silly question but is CUPS running? in your browser go to


and you should get a page of CUPS settings.
if it is not running issue this command as root
/etc/rc.d/init.d/cups start

you may have to check mime types too in

cups has a nifty html page, try putting this in your browser and do abit of reading


to start cups during boot put this at the bottom of

if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.cups ]; then
# Start CUPS:
/etc/rc.d/rc.cups start
elif [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.lprng ]; then
# Start LPRng (lpd):
. /etc/rc.d/rc.lprng start

I hesitate to say this, but as of right now CUPS seems to have stopped working on my system completely, because when I try to print a test page, the following window pops up:

point browser to

default bahavior in 7.1 is that cups should be started automagically through

could someone verify if this is also true for 7.0
if not than this should start it at boot
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.cups

Well, I DID figure out how to manually activate cups (via the Internet), unfortunately, however, it gets deactivated whenever I log out, so how do I fix it so that I don't have to manually reactivate it every time I start Linux?

Thanks, but unfortunately I have encountered another problem in that when I tried to activate the printer earlier (using CUPS), I encountered a problem as shown in the two attachments. The first shows the window that came up, and the second shows what happened when I pressed the "Connect" button. So how do I go about activating CUPS in the first place?
