printer and scanner were working fine, then disappeared a couple of months ago.
prints from mac and windows
Printer disappeared, tried to connect to IP of printer.
able to use browser to connect to admin page.
service start cups resulted in something like Job unalbe to start
tried reinstalling cups with error message that it was unable to complete
service start cups results in Job is already running
in Printing menu, it defaults to localhost, no ability to add, printing service unavailable, start service on computer or connect to another computer.
Tried connecting to IP of printer as location of cups server which doesn't work - I know that is not the location of the cups server, but don't have any other ideas of what to enter - seems to be a very limited interface
