Re: [K12OSN] Re: cups stopping printer



Never mind my blather about two lines or one line... it looks like the script came through with no word wrapping and is fine...

We've used this strategy for quite a while. While I believe enabling an already started printer is fine, I actually wrote a script to find the disabled ones and enable only those.

Here's my "cupstickle" script which we run every 5 mimutes in a cron job:
-----------------------------------------
#!/bin/bash
/usr/bin/enable `/usr/bin/lpstat -p | /bin/grep disabled | /usr/bin/cut -f 2 -d " "`
-----------------------------------------
(the last two lines above should really be on the same line, there is only one line after the #!/bin/bash)

HTH,

Is there anything wrong with putting this in the crontab?  :

what if you run enable on a printer that is already started?  will
that be a problem?

For the minute, you could just do */10
