openrc the system behind nemesis: printing as an example

openrc is the system behind nemesis
https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?titl ... to_systemd

Some adjustments could not even be done without it. In my case, I could not get nemesis printing go without a special openrc package called cups-openrc-20170309-1.

Thus to install printing capabilities to nemesis:
pman -Sy manjaro-printer
pman -S cups-openrc
pman -S avahi-openrc
rc-update add avahi-daemon default
rc-service cupsd start

This is not enough to get system-printer-config working:

Code: Select all

root ~ # rc-service cupsd start
cupsd            | * Caching service dependencies ...                             [ ok ]
cupsd            | * Starting cupsd ...                                           [ ok ]

CUPS works but system-config-printer does not.

Output of system-config-printer command line:
