    Hello,

    I am unable to print. I have installed antiX17 32b on a live USB, base install.

    I installed cups with synaptic.

    When I try to get the web printing manager on localhost:631, I get the cups 2.2.1 page, but no link works. My browser (firefox) answers : Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at localhost:631.or”

    The lpinfo -v command returns : “mauvais descripteur de fichier” in french, something like “bad file descriptor”

    Can anyone give a hand ?

    its very likely that the cupsd daemon is not running. by default, the live-USB system contains the “disable=lx” boot code, which prevents certain apps from starting. IIRC, cupsd is one of those apps.

    These applications are missing on base
    https://antixlinux.com/applications-on-antix-full-but-not-included-on-antix-base/

    So it’s probably not enough to install cups.

    Maybe helps
    sudo apt-get install cups cups-filters system-config-printer system-config-printer-udev printer-driver-gutenprint

    If your printer is a hp-printer you also need
    sudo apt-get install hplip printer-driver-hpijs

    If your printer has an integrated scanner
    sudo apt-get install sane-utils simple-scan libsane-hpaio libsane

    Normaly you should be able to start cups on a live-system with
    sudo service cups start

    Hello,

    Thank you very much to both of you !

    1. For cups, the service was not started. The sudo service cups start command helped. How can I make the service always on ? or is it a bad idea ?
    I will now install my printer, I hope I will get it work, perhaps I will need drivers.

    2. Thank you for the link to the “base vs core” packages, I was looking for this information. I installed antiX-base only because of the size of a CD… but I have now added a lot of packages much more like antiX-full.

    ^—– yes, and that (disable=lx by default) has tripped me up occassionally

    for reference:
    On a live system, you can review the list (legend?) of disable= codes and associated services
    sudo cat /live/etc/init.d/live-disable-services

    Can also review the list online https://gitlab.com/antiX-Linux/Live-initrd-1/blob/master/etc/init.d/live-disable-services
    (the exact items listed are subject to change, across releases)

    LEAN_SERVICES ( these are disabled when bootline specifies disable=l )

    nfs-common

    saned
    smartmontools
    ssh
    stop-bootlogd

    Hello Dolphin_oracle and Skidoo,

    Thank you very much for your answers.

    Is it safe or useful to enable these services by modifying the boot option ?
