    I am running antiX live USB version 17 on a Dell Latitude D610.
    My printer is Lexmark E352dn. I previously had it working on another laptop with antiX 16 installed.

    I turned on the printer and went to control center > hardward > set up printer. Everything is greyed out except “Connect” which I clicked. Got another box: “Connect to CUPS server local host”. Clicked “connect” and got a “CUPS server error” “failed to connect to server”

    Please help.

    I got it to work.
    I went to control center > system > choose start up services and started CUPS which identified the printer and lead me through a setup process so now the printer is working fine.
    I will mark this as solved.

    Well done.

    Just so you know, when running live cups is turned off by default by the disable=lx cheat at the desktop menu. If you remove this line when booting live, then cups should work without you needing to choose startup services.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    How do you go about removing the line when booting live?

    At the boot menu, just use the back key to remove the words disable=lx
