Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So I'm trying to setup CUPS + AirPrint support and one of the packages required is Avahi.

I have installed it via ipkg, and have tried running the daemon, however I get the following error.

Failed to find user 'avahi'

How can I fix this?

By creating a user "avahi".

adduser --system --shell /bin/false --home /var/run/avahi --disabled-password avahi
