[ SOLVED ] PROBLEM ACTIVATING CUPS.
« on: November 13, 2014, 11:20:18 am »
I tried to manually activate CUPS using Super VASM, but when Firefox started it displayed the message "NOT FOUND" in big bold letters.

Well, CUPS finally recognized my printer, but now when I try to print anything, it doesn't respond :(, but the interesting thing is that the scanner part IS working.

Well, I FINALLY got the problem resolved, it turned out that the graphic card that I was using (or at least trying to use) wouldn't "mesh" (so to speak) with the default installation procedure, and was, I thing, conflicting with other parts of the operating system. So to make a long story short, everything , including my all-in-one printer/scanner, is working as they should.
