cups 1.6.2 my online notes to myself
« on: April 30, 2013, 05:09:46 PM »
Ok subject to numerous edits.......but to assist me to focus my mind on why some things work and some don't etc

getting somewhere

Firstly with the split in cupsd.conf into cupsd.conf and cups-files.conf......some old terms can no longer be used when I was I fumbling in the dark
from debug log
Quote
Unknown directive BrowseOrder on line 18 of /usr/local/etc/cups/cupsd.conf.
Unknown directive BrowseAllow on line 19 of /usr/local/etc/cups/cupsd.conf.

so users must be informed to delete any persistence before reboot.....except for PPD

The new default cupsd.conf for local setting is
Quote
# Show shared printers on the local network.
Browsing On
BrowseLocalProtocols dnssd

This backend has built, but at the moment I am using ##### BrowseLocalProtocols all ######
more testing required.# still not done you dummy

build rebuilt again and again. I am getting some funny errors now for my doc/help and doc/images on tce-load

Me thinks I toughened the ownership and perms there without wondering why the install had them......giggles

Any how we finally have something working.......login box now appears but more work needed

firstly I start a previous build of cups with debug log to see that cups wants something

today's rebuild.....cups still wants to repair......damn....ahh its my eyesight again

I will cheat and use unsquash with repacks a while until I get these all resolved

ok rebuilt with CUPS preferred  ownership and CUPS desired permissions but
tce-load  complains with permission denied against the most hardened folders,
ony in the /usr/local/etc folder and /var folder

I have elected to compromise, since I know CUPS repairs as seen in debug mode, my current build shows, before installing a PPD

Quote
Repairing access permissions of "/var/spool/cups"
Repairing access permissions of "/usr/local/etc/cups/ssl"

after repair it says
Code: [Select]
ls -al /var/spool
drwx--x--- 3 root staff  60 May  8 14:47 cups

ls -al /usr/local/etc/cups/
drwx------  2 root staff   40 May  8 14:47 ssl

IMHO, if I try to have no group READ permission for staff or the World, tce-load is giving error messages.

Therefore I will rebuild, but probably mention in info file, NOT to post a bug report for the following debug messages
and name them......more building required

right so back to revisit my config and help and now I spot it only thru checking the log
Quote
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --sysconfdir=/usr/local/etc --localstatedir=/var \
--enable-libpaper --disable-libusb --enable-dbus --with-dbusdir=/usr/local/etc/dbus-1 \
--enable-ssl --disable-gnutls --enable-openssl --enable-avahi --enable-dnssd \
--with-cups-user=tc --with-cups-group=staff --with-system-groups=root \
--enable-largefile --with-printcap=/usr/local/etc/printcap --enable-pam \
--with-config-file-perm=644  --with-cupsd-file-perm=755 --with-pam-module=unix \
--enable-browsing --enable-webif --with-smbconfig=/usr/local/etc/samba

pam module can't be named pam_unix.so  new way gives

Code: [Select]
cat *.log | grep pam_unix
PAMMOD='pam_unix.so'
PAMMODAUTH='pam_unix.so shadow nodelay'

and Linux-PAM has that pam file!

and contents of the pam file finally change from pam_unknown to
Quote
auth   required   pam_unix.so shadow nodelay
account   required   pam_unix.so

have not tested yet, but build also includes file permissions and I will test samba as well

I can't test samba as I don't windows but enabling it in configure gives 2 new docs
