Issues with installed printer and CUPS

Post by eyekay234 » 2021/07/16 16:24:45

I have installed a HP Laser Jet 1018 printer on my centos 8 system. Anytime i plugin the usb cable to print and i check system services in administrative access mode using https://192.168.9.102:9090/system/services i keep seeing this error below:

configure-printer@usb-001-005 Configure Plugged-In Printer Failed to start

when i click on it, i get the following full message:

Configure Plugged-In Printer

Status
Static
Failed to start
Path
/usr/lib/systemd/system/configure-printer@.service

even when i click on start service it does nothing.

Further message i get is :

How do i get this to work and print as it also doesnt allow me see the printer even after installing CUPS well

Might those messages possibly be from machine boot-up when a driver poll for that device didn't find it connected and therefore couldn't start? (Don't know; just throwing that out there).
