Check whether or not the cups daemon is running. It probably wasn't
at the time you got this message. (yeah, the messages are a little
more terse than necessary)
Cups is getting me down, and worried.
I have this printer as the same subnet as the server, and the daemon is
running, yet, I can't get the lp functions to work.
I did set the default printer setting through the cups web pages, yet
lpr doesn't understand that there is a default printer.
I tried to install the foomatic-rip packages and have removed the first
error I found in my logs, but I still am unable to print to this printer.
And yet, I'm unable to get anything out of this.
I'll come back to it in a few months. I'm tired of this for now. In
the meantime they can stick to Windows.
An ordinary man a long way from home.
