The cupsInfo script gathers CUPS-related information to help in troubleshooting CUPS issues. The following information is obtained in the script execution process:
- 1. Rights and permissions on each file installed by cups
- 2. Rights on specific directories.
- 3. Content of specific files.
- 4. Miscellaneous commands.
- lstat –v
- lsof -i TCP:631
- rpm -qa | egrep '^cups|^foomatic|^ghostscript|^hplip'|sort –d
- tail -n 100 /var/log/cups/error_log
1. Download cupsInfo.tgz
2. Open a Terminal window and type “su”
3. Enter root’s password
4. Extract the script from the tarball
#tar –xzvf cupsInfo.tgz
5. Make the script executable.
#chmod 755 cupsInfo.sh
6. Run the cupsInfo.sh script
Note: Using a –h will display other parameter options if desired.
7. Default execution of this script will create a file in the current directory called cupsInfo.txt.
