commented Aug 2, 2019

Steps to reproduce

  • install the last nethserver-cups
  • check logs you will find obsolete and not known directives
E [02/Aug/2019:16:02:23 +0200] Unknown directive BrowseOrder on line 22 of /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.
E [02/Aug/2019:16:02:23 +0200] Unknown directive BrowseAllow on line 23 of /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.
E [02/Aug/2019:16:02:23 +0200] Unknown browse protocol "CUPS" ignored.

Expected behavior

I expect no warnings, nor errors

Actual behavior

With cups 1.6.3, the settings have changed, now you need to modify

# Show shared printers on the local network.
Browsing On
BrowseOrder allow,deny
BrowseAllow all
BrowseLocalProtocols CUPS dnssd


# Show shared printers on the local network.
Browsing Yes
BrowseWebIF Yes
BrowseLocalProtocols All

according to man cupsd.conf

       BrowseLocalProtocols [All] [DNSSD]
            Specifies the protocols to use for local printer sharing.

       BrowseWebIF Yes

       BrowseWebIF No
            Specifies whether the CUPS web interface is advertised via DNS-SD.

       Browsing Yes

       Browsing No
            Specifies whether or not shared printers should be advertised.
