Enabling CUPS remote administration via console

There are various way to enable  CUPS remote administration via console or Linux terminal. You can modify the /etc/cups/cupsd.conf and add those “Allow all” directives in several lines.

Here’s a quick and easier way to enable remote administration for CUPS:

1. Open a terminal

2. With root or sudo access, do:

$> cupsctl --remote-admin

3. Done.

CUPS not running on boot (Ubuntu 10.04)

After the excitement of installing the new Ubuntu 10.04 to our test workstation. I’ve encountered this CUPS problem, the service is not automatically or faulty started  during the boot sequence. Even though I already fixed the problem, still have no clue what exactly causes it.

Here’s how:

1.  Reinstall cups package.

$> sudo apt-get install --reinstall cups

2.  Done.
