Printers gone, Cups stoped

Post by abrj » Thu Sep 27, 2018 4:12 pm

Hello
I'm quite a newbie to Linux. Suddenly my printers are gone and I have to restart CUPS Print Spooler. The system says I have to go to System>Administration>Services, but I can't find this. Please help me, I'm desperat! Where do I click to come so I can get back my printers?

I need urgently help! Please anyone.
When I go into the printers menu it says "The print service is not available. Start the service on this computer or connect another server." and there is two buttons, one who says Start service and one that says Connect. The Start service button is gray, and when I try the Connect button I get an errormessage that I can't connect.
I need to print, and it worked earlier this evening!
