If you are installing iPrint in a VMWare environment, you might encounter issues that are caused by conflicts with the VMware tools. The tools use a startup script that starts CUPS. If iPrint is installed, this can cause problems in managing the iPrint server that the VMware tools are installed on. There is a conflict that cannot be resolved until CUPS releases the port it is holding open.
To fix this, run the following script: #> chmod 775 /etc/init.d/vmware-tools
Now, go to vmware-tools and comment out the following lines:
$cupsscript start #> vi /etc/init.d/vmware-tools # If we found CUPS, start it, wait, then start tpvmlpd if [ $cupsscript ]; then # $cupsscript start sleep 2 #> chkconfig cups off
Reboot to test the new configuration.
