View Full Version : /usr/bin/enable and disable don't exist

16th June 2006, 07:28 AM
hi all,

i've got FC5 with CUPS installed, and am trying to setup my network printer (a Lexmark T522 to be exact). When I try to run the Lexprint software, or follow an examples with CUPS, I'm getting stuck because when I'm asked to enable the printer (with '/usr/bin/enable printer'), I don't have that file!

I've re-installed CUPS from source and through yum, with no change...
Any ideas?

do you have the file "/usr/sbin/accept"?

yep, sure do.

okay, enable and disable are symlinks to /usr/sbin/accept and /usr/sbin/reject, respectively. you can either substitute these commands or recreate the symlinks, your choice!

thanks heaps for that! :) :) :)
