Subject: [gentoo-user] cups 1.3 -> 1.4 no more avahi?
Date: Sun, 26 Jun 2011 03:44:34
1 I upgraded cups to 1.4.6 today and my Macs could no longer print to it.
2 I looked and the avahi USE flag is gone, so I checked the avahi wiki
3 page to see if some other flag should be used. That page said this:
5 Zeroconf isn't enabled by default so you have to browse the CUPS admin
6 page and enable it. Open http://localhost:631/admin if you're running it
7 on localhost and enable the "Share published printers connected to this
8 system" option. "Change Settings" will restart CUPS and your printer
9 should be instantly visible to zeroconf-aware applications in the local
10 network.
12 Unfortunately, shared printers from other systems aren't usable with
13 zero configuration by default. You have to check "Show shared printers
14 from other systems" under Administration and you have to actively search
15 for them and manually add them in the webinterface.
17 I looked and I already have those options set. My config file has the
18 following sharing options:
20 Browsing On
21 BrowseOrder allow,deny
22 BrowseAllow all
23 BrowseAddress @LOCAL
24 BrowseLocalProtocols CUPS
26 I'm not sure what I'm missing for the Macs to be happy like they were
27 with 1.3 and avahi.
