cups printing not working
Status in cups package in Ubuntu:
A couple of days ago CUPS stopped working.
Now if I try to print, no printers show in the list of available
printers. If I open the Printers window (system-config-printer) all I
get is a message that says "Printing service not available. Start the
service on this computer or connect to another server."
The start service button is greyed out. If I click connect and try to
connect to localhost I get an error "There was an error during the
CUPS operation: 'failed to connect to server'."
I tried sudo service cups start but it didn't help. I'm not sure what
happened recently that could have caused this - perhaps an update to
one of the packages but it has been working since I upgraded to 14.10
so it's not directly due to the system upgrade.
