Author Topic: Cups 404 Error  (Read 1902 times)

Hello. 5.9.1 SOHO is nice.

Meanwhile, cups returns a 404 error on a fresh installation. The service starts up at run level 4. I have tried fiddling with my /etc/hosts file and reinstalling cups. Google is fruitless, and I couldn't find anyone here with a similar issue.

Would anyone like to hazard any guesses? I'm out of ideas.

have you tried to make sure the service is actually running?

Code:
server cups status

I've seen this happen on different versions of cups
try accessing localhost:631/admin
That has worked for me when I get the 404 error

Thanks, guys:

Code:
service cups status

Returns:

Code:
scheduler is running

and:

Code:
localhost:631/admin

does indeed get me to the admin page for cups, but it's ugly (see attached jpg).

Of course, working is working, so I suppose I am happy. Still, I'm curious as to what might be distorting the interface.

I haven't tried 5.9.1 SOHO, but the "ugly interface" for CUPS has been a recurring problem. It popped up during beta testing for 5.9 Standard and it's there in VL 6 alpha 2. It was fixed somewhere along the line in VL 5.9 Standard and I'm sure it'll be fixed in VL 6. I think the problem was that the path for the graphics was wrong or the graphics were missing.

Are other people having the same problem with 5.9.1?
