Cups may be denied access to its own config file. http://tubee.net/cups-unable/cups-unable-to-execute-a-program.html Why did cup say "unable to read" instead of complaining of the actual error in the file? -- Cheers / Saludos, Carlos E. Turns out that cups doesn't even *try* to open the config file: # strace -f /usr/sbin/cupsd -f >| /tmp/cups.strace 2>&1 # grep cupsd.conf /tmp/cups.strace | wc 0 0 0 # grep Summary: cupsd fails to read /etc/cups/cupsd.conf, due to not even *trying* to read it...

Almost every line is commented out with a "#". To answer your earlier question, uninstalling and re-installing should remove all of the files (you can remove /etc/cups manually regardless) so you can then add it as a new printer.

There is a .lpoptions in the ~/ directory but it seems that kde is not reading configuraon from it. Request was from Debbugs Internal Request to [email protected] (Mon, 17 Sep 2012 07:26:50 GMT) Full text and rfc822 format available.

Code: Telcontar:~ # l /etc/cups/cupsd.conf -rw-r----- 1 root lp 6442 Aug 19 14:33 /etc/cups/cupsd.conf The permissions are the same as in a pristine 12.1 system. I ran the command "chmod 700/usr/lib/cups/backend/hp" and tried to print. It is user - root and group - root with permissions set at 0644. The compare is complex, there are many differences.
