Ok, Let's analyze the matter systematically !!!!
I have deleted everything using cups admin, job queue, printers.
According to BLFS cups installation manual, "There is a conflict between the Cups libusb backend and the usblp kernel driver. If you want to use Cups with libusb, do not enable USB Printer support in your kernel"
I have enabled the USB Printer support option in the kernel (As I have compiled the kernel before I have installed the cups module !!!). So I have used the --disable-libusswitch when compiling cups.
Now when I try to use the cups front end using the web browser and try to find the printer- it cannot not find the printer.
Do you think this is normal as I have not compiled cups with libusb support? if yes, then I need to add the printer manually, istn't it? Which I tried to do but I do not know what I should write : the options are :
I have tried http://hostname:631/ipp/, ipp://hostname/ipp/ and lpd://hostname/queuebut it didn't work !!!! it is saying not such hostname when trying to print a test page.
It will be nice if you can provide me a step by step debug instruction
Thanks for your help.
