[solved] Cups upgrade / wiki / installation messages

Updating the system today, I could see a message warning me about changes about the cups service name because upstream changed the service and advising me to enable / start the correct service.

However I forgot the way to find out the new service name (and I foolishly closed the terminal before reading the message again). I later learnt that this:


[user@PC ~]$ sudo systemctl enable cups.service
Created symlink /etc/systemd/system/printer.target.wants/cups.service → /usr/lib/systemd/system/cups.service.
Created symlink /etc/systemd/system/sockets.target.wants/cups.socket → /usr/lib/systemd/system/cups.socket.
Created symlink /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/cups.path → /usr/lib/systemd/system/cups.path.
[user@PC ~]$ sudo systemctl start cups.service

is the correct service, but how do you re read installation warning / messages?

As a result of the upstream change, I think the wiki is now outdated as it advises to start the wrong service (org.cups.cupsd.service) here https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/CUPS

Re: [solved] Cups upgrade / wiki / installation messages

Depending on where in the chain they've been added it might be present in the /var/log/pacman.log. Feel free to edit and fix the wiki, that's how things happen in there.

Alternatively look at the package commits/changelogs: https://github.com/archlinux/svntogit-p … 0e7193c9d0

Thanks, it was in the link you sent.

I went and tried to edit the wiki, but it is now correct.

Thanks again.
