Cups not starting on boot

Asked by Filippo Garavaglia on 2010-05-04

Ubuntu 10.04
To let the system recognize (and install) a printer (Hp Officejet 5610 and Deskjet 3820) I always have to (re)start the cups via terminal
sudo /etc/init.d/cups restart
(even start works)
Tried putting it into startup applications, no results.
I have all the permissions and my /etc/network/interfaces contains the values
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

as suggested in

Still no results.
What happened? There wasn't this issue on 9.10.

Note that it's a similar bug to but I don't have issues with bluetooth or anything else, just with cups.

Try using the program "rcconf" (that's its name in the repos.) I used that recently to adjust startup services.

Nope, problem not solved, rcconf says all the services are on at startup, tried to turning off and then on again, nothing changes, I still need to start cups manually.

Reinstalled again (3rd time) the whole cups package kinda hopelessly, it solved the problem (?????).
