This is a bug in the cups package, bug #748841. There is a test package available which should fix it (cups-1.5.0-22.fc16):

https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2011-15223

Update by using this command:

su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing cups-1.5.0-22.fc16'

Subsequent times you restart the system you should find that the CUPS service is now available.

We were hoping you would test the package and provide it karma ;)

i found the solution is very easy :

start the service :

sudo systemctl start cups.service

Turn the service on, for start at next boot, or other trigger.

sudo systemctl enable cups.service

I can verify the solution above. It worked very well. The problem was that the cups service wasn't started by default. Therefore the different cups configuration tools couldn't connect to the service.

I'm currently trying to install Fedora to dual boot with Windows 7 on my system, but when I try to create a partition, I get the error: could not allocate requested partitions: not enough free space on disks. Before I attempted to install, I purposely made 20480 MB of free space to install in, and that shows up in the drive menu, but it's won't let me install in it. Help?
