    Lubuntu Firefox CUPS access fails

    The last two ISO's failed to access CUPS page(http://localhost:631/).

    Bootup live cd/usb/loop-back , open firefox, from link:http://localhost:631/, should bring up CUPS access.

    Ironically, I can update to current, the last one(4/9/18) that worked, and CUPS works.

    Re: Lubuntu Firefox CUPS access fails

    I found the problem. cups service was not running. Starting it fixed the issue
    Code:
    lubuntu@lubuntu:~$ systemctl status cups
    ● cups.service - CUPS Scheduler
       Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/cups.service; enabled; vendor preset: ena
       Active: inactive (dead)
         Docs: man:cupsd(8)
    
    lubuntu@lubuntu:~$ systemctl start cups
    
    lubuntu@lubuntu:~$ systemctl status cups
    ● cups.service - CUPS Scheduler
       Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/cups.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
       Active: active (running) since Mon 2018-04-16 22:34:28 UTC; 2s ago
         Docs: man:cupsd(8)
     Main PID: 5598 (cupsd)
        Tasks: 1 (limit: 4304)
       CGroup: /system.slice/cups.service
               └─5598 /usr/sbin/cupsd -l
