    Can't get local host in 13.04

    After upgrade to 13.04 neither Firefox or Chromium browsers will access localhost. Chromium says "Chromium's connection attempt to localhost was rejected".

    This is not a problem when I go back to 12.10.

    It may be a 64bit specific problem 'cos it happens on my desktop (64-bit installation) but not on a laptop (32-bit).

    The contents of /etc/hosts,host.conf,hostname,hosts.allow,hosts.deny are the same in my 12.10 & 13.04

    I wanted to get to localhost:631 to deal with a printer problem.

    you are trying to use the cups conf feature try in the browser the address with the right port:

    "localhost:231"

    to check if cups is installed:
    Code:
    dpkg -s cups

    That gives the same result, I cannot access localhost. When did it change from 631? I've used that for years and on my laptop 631 gives cups info.

    to check if cups is installed:
    Code:
    dpkg -s cups
    dpkg -s cups
    Package: cups
    Status: install ok installed

    if you only have that printer connection issue (but no network trouble), then check the users & groups properties

    Solved it!

    The problem was in cupsd.conf.

    The line

    Listen /var/run/cups/cups.sock

    was repeated twice

    I replaced one of these with

    Listen localhost:631

    I presume this is a bug in the 64bit version of 13.04
