Configuring and Managing Printing in Oracle® Solaris 11.4

Exit Print View

Updated: August 2019

Preparatory Steps for CUPS

To set up printers, assume the root role or become an administrator who is assigned the Print Management rights profile. For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.4.

Next, ensure that the SMF print services are enabled:

$ svcs -a | grep cups/scheduler
online 18:18:55 svc:/application/cups/scheduler:default

$ svcs -a | grep cups/in-lpd
online Sep_29 svc:/application/cups/in-lpd:default

If these services are disabled, issue the appropriate svcadm command for each service that needs to be enabled:

$ svcadmin enable print-service

where print-service is either cups/scheduler or cups/in-lpd.
