[Solved] Issues with setting up printer

I'm currently trying to setup my printer, and I'm running into some issues.

I've been following the CUPS wiki article, so I've enabled and started org.cups.cupsd.service, and setup .local hostname resolution with Avahi and restarted org.cups.cupsd.service.

After that I typed in avahi-discover, to try and find printers on my local network. It gave me this error:

Failed to connect to Avahi Server (Is it running?): module 'dbus' has no attribute 'SystemBus'

I checked to make sure that the CUPS and Avahi systemd services were running and they were.

Re: [Solved] Issues with setting up printer

avahi-discover has several dependencies that are optional for the avahi package.

post pacman -Qi avahi and check the optional dependencies.


Multi-init booting with apg Openrc and systemd coexisting
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: [Solved] Issues with setting up printer

That did it, thanks. So should I check for optional dependencies if something doesn't work in the future?

That should be the first thing to check, yes.
