Problem with CUPS server on Fedora


UCPS is an Open source printing system. It can use to print something from few applications. For an example you can print a picture in webpage from the printer through UCPA printing system.

It can keep tracking about the printing history and the current states of the printer that you are going to use through the UCPS.  

From the UCPS it converts the print data which it get from the application into the printer understandable data. Then the printer can print data without any difficulty.

But the printers that you use can be change from machine to machine. So it is very difficult to control the situations to the CPS system.

If you using the printer first time, it can be crashed because the system cannot identify the printer correctly. Other vice it can be happens because of the load of work.

However these links will help you to find the solution.

Thank you …

Hello Gregory,

Try restarting the CUPS server, which can be done by using the following command:

  • sudo /etc/init.d/cups restart

The CUPS service will first be stopped. Then it will be started again. If this doesn't work, you can make some changes in the printer.conf file.

Check the contents of the file by using the following command:

  • cat /etc/cups/printers.conf

Find the printer which has the State Stopped and change it to:

  • State Idle

Hope this helps.

Happy computing,
