I’m running NetBSd 9 and I can potentially build from source.
I tried to build cups-base but it did not end well. I got errors such as libuuid missing which is was not and I made matters worse then I tried to fix it. So, I’m starting again with a fresh install and pkgsrc and I’ll build cups-base from scratch. Am I correct in assuming that pkgin and pkgsrc can coexist happily?

Not sure if it will fix your printing,but at least that error would disappear. (ippfind needs mdnsd=YES in/etc/rc.conf in that case)Can you build packages from pkgsrc?What version of NetBSD are you running?Cheers,Patrick

I've installed NetBSD 9 on intel based machine and I'm having trouble
setting up printing. I decided to use CUPS to manage printing. The
printer is on my local network and has a fixed IP address.
I installed cups and hplip, enabled and started cupsd, and added the HP
OfficeJet 8610 to CUPS.
When I print the test page the job is visible in the queue and completes
but nothing prints. If I look in /var/log/cups/error_log I see the
E [14/Oct/2020:20:06:47 +1100] [CGI] Unable to execute ippfind utility: No
such file or directory
I checked the wiki and followed the instructions setting up CUPS and as far
as I can tell I've done everything right. I also see chatter on some Linux
forums describing a similar problem.
Is there another package I'm supposed to install to make this work?
