Cups printer acting weird

So I lost access to my printer. (Service won’t connect.) Cups webpage won’t load. Things like that. Uninstalled Cups and then reinstalled. Whew, we’re back. Today it did the exact same thing.

Please post the output of systemctl status cups


Thanks for responding. I figured it out. Too embarrassing to share details.

You should share it for others who might make the same mistake.


The first one was real - reinstall cups - not embarrassing.
The second time things were not plugged in. Ugh, Doh!
