Made changes to /etc/cups/cupsd.conf need a clean/new file

Post by Mint user 2142 » Fri Feb 16, 2018 12:47 am

Hi, I was trying to make some changes to CUPS and its webpage wouldn't accept my root credentials. Following the advice from https://www.linuxquestions.org/question ... rd-156986/ I edited /etc/cups/cupsd.conf . I've since found that the printing service does/can not start and would like to revert this change.

I foolishly didn't make a backup of the file before changing it, can somebody please post a new cupsd.conf?

The cupsd post installation copies the file /usr/share/cups/cupsd.conf.default to /etc/cups/cupsd.conf so all you need to do is

sudo cp /usr/share/cups/cupsd.conf.default /etc/cups/cupsd.conf :wink:
