Kernel modules

The whole kernel modules section is confusing. Is it mandatory? What exactly should we do?

Print button greyed-out in GNOME print dialogs

As suggested by the Arch wiki, I used the

# HostNameLookups Double

option. However, that resulted in following error message: IP lookup failed - connection from localhost closed!

and I wasn't able to add printers via the CUPS web interface (internal server error)

It seems there is an outstanding bug with respect to the HostNameLookups: http://www.cups.org/str.php?L4070+Qversion:%20-feature

Removing the HostNameLookups double form the cups config file resolved my issue. Not sure why this used to solve instead of create problems.

Device node permissions

I got a problem after update of hplip / cups and foomatic. My printer not working anymore.

So I first check possible problems and read section Device node permissions. It's recommended to verify that permissions are 660. It was my case so I am looking to find another solution.

After a long time and read I was back to this section. I read also section below Device node permission troubleshooting. As my conf was with well permission I don't really read all carefully. It was the 3rd/4th time before I see the note about 666 permissions. I tried this and it's solved my problem.

So I think it would be great to make also a note on Device node permissions about 666. Because my conf look alright as writing in wiki, but in fact not.

Is libcups really sufficient as a client package ?

I can't seem to be able to print in KDE applications (4.9.97) if I only have libcups installed:

Could not print the document. Detailed error is "Could not find a suitable binary for printing. Make sure CUPS lpr binary is available"

But /usr/bin/lpr is part of the cups package... Could it be that KDE requires cups for printing ? --Gdebure (talk) 23:02, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
