I go to VASM, and Cups starts in levels 3 and 4, if I remember, maybe it was 2 and 3. When I go to print after rebooting or logging out and back in, my printer is not there, and I have to restart Cups, after which my printer is visible again.

What's up? Or, where should I start looking to see what's up?

Is CUPS selected to start at boot? You can select/check this by going to VASM, Service, Services and seeing if the checkbox for CUPS is checked or not.

I noticed a similar problem after the last cups update on gslapt.  Three of our computers would not print after the update, even though cups was set to start in run level 4 and even though the program showed that cups was running. In any event, after a while, it seemed to fix itself.  I can't remember what I did.  I think I just disabled cups in run level 4 and re-enabled it.  Now they all work fine.

Problem resolved. Turned out to be CUPS wasn't checked at the runlevel I was using. It was a result of not understanding how runlevels worked. I had to go out and figure that one out - and as a result I edited the Wikepedia runlevel entry to clarify it. I thought they ran sequentially, but - as any non-newb here knows, it is an either/or proposition.

Thanks all.
