Tweaking a new Manjaro Linux 20.1 installation to share printers and allow remote administration, done while replacing an aging Optiplex desktop box that’s been running unattended for far too long.
Start by installing Manjaro’s printer support package:
pamac install manjaro-printer
In the general section of the default
/etc/cups/cupsd.conf file, up near the top:
Listen *:631 # listen on all interfaces DefaultShared Yes # share the local printers BrowseWebIF Yes # turn on the Web interface
Allow remote admin:
<Location /> Allow all Order allow,deny </Location> <Location /admin> Allow all Order allow,deny </Location>
Restart the CUPS server:
sudo systemctl restart org.cups.cupsd
And then It Should Just Work.

But… that font. Did Courier New and Comic Sans hook up and make a Little Font?
Weird, isn’t it?
I have gradually come to peace with the realization I have little control over what WordPress does with my text.
Being a traditionalist, though, I run IBM 3270 Narrow on the terminals around here.
Oh… that’s lovely. (quickly does a git clone) Yes, that’s quite nice…
