I am a new Linux user and I am testing the above Knoppix 3.9 with Kernel 2.6.11 and KDE 3.4.
I cannot install any printer as I keep getting failure messages.
If I go: Control center --> Peripherals --> Printers
"Unable to retrieve the printer list. Error message received from manager:
Connection to CUPS server failed. Check that the CUPS server is correctly installed and running. Error: connection refused."
When I do: Add --> Add printer/class
"An error occurred while retrieving the list of available backends:
Connection to CUPS server failed. Check that the CUPS server is correctly installed and running."
--> Add printer wizard --> Bachkend selection --> all text white, no radio button available.
When I do: Print server --> Restart server
"Unable to restart print server. Error message received from manager:
Unable to find a running CUPS server"
When I do: Print server --> Configure server
"Unable to configure print server. Error message received from manager:
Unable to retrieve configuration file from the CUPS server. You probably don't have the access permissions to perform this operation."
Has anybody any solution for me (and the two friends who migrated along with me)?
