The new way to enable cups is simply sudo systemctl enable cups.service

This fixed it for me. Thank you for the help mate!

Wasn’t this issue extensively covered and this fix quoted here?



Hummm, someone mentioned this 4 or 5 days ago in a YouTube chat, so I went to the, there was nothing mentioned on the “Lastest News” section on this issue. :thinking:
I have not see this on any of my Arch OS flavors. Maybe I’m lucky… Usually not! Lol
I will keep this post in mind just in case… :slight_smile:
Thanks for the posting!
