View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problem staring CUPS with CUPS beta (1.4b2)

January 17th, 2009, 07:12 PM
Has anyone tried compiling and running the new CUPS beta? Everything "seems" to have gone OK (the ./configure, make, and make install), but when I try to restart cups, I get the following message:

/usr/sbin/cupsd: error while loading shared libraries: libcupsmime.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
cups: unable to start scheduler.
cups: scheduler is not running.

One question I do have is does it matter from which directory I compile and install CUPS? I just made a directory off of my $HOME dir to unpack, compile, and install the beta.

After the install, I did reboot just for good measure.

Found that by copying the file libcupsmime.so.1 from /usr/lib64/ to /usr/lib/, that fixed the problem. Not sure why it got installed in /usr/lib64/ since I'm not running the 64-bit version of Ubuntu.
