broken cups in sid
Anyone else had problems with this?
I dist-upgraded from sarge to sid abt. three days ago, and lost
(amongst others) cups. As far as I could understand, there was a
conflict between two versions of libcupsys2. At first, I worried
that I had either to remove gnumeric or most of kde apps. So I
waited a couple of days. Then I decided to sacrifice gnumeric, and
try at least to get cups up and running again. So I removed gnumeric
and juggled a few versions in the foomatic-gimp-print / libcupsys2 /
etc until aptitude said nothing was broken, and installed. Magic! -
cupsys was up and running, I could log onto localhost:631 and it all
looked good. But I cannot print or add a printer or do any admin
function. I get "client-error-bad-request" or "client-error-gone"
for every action.
Does anyone else have problems with recent cupsys? Do these errors
indicate anything particular I should check? Is cups really broken
now or did I drop the crockery myself? I have googled until I was fed
up with french and russian discussions (the one I understand with
difficulty, the other not at all) of client-error-bads, but found
nothing useful yet.
