I’ve added a patch to CUPS in Fedora rawhide which uses the system journal for logging. I did this after watching Lennart’s devconf talk, which reminded me how awesome the systemd Journal is.
The changes are very simple at the moment: any log message relating to a particular job has a field “CUPS_JOB_ID” to say which one. Additionally, page log messages include the page number as “CUPS_PAGE_NUMBER”. This support is in rawhide, starting with cups-1.7.0-1.fc21.
To enable it, adjust /etc/cups/cups-files.conf and set “ErrorLog journal”. You can also set AccessLog and PageLog to “journal”.
Fedora 20 Alpha has been released, and I’d been putting off installing it because I know how troublesome an alpha release can be. This one, though, is the best alpha release of Fedora I can remember!
It actually seems incrementally better than Fedora 19, rather than the traditional break-everything-and-fix-it-again-later alpha releases we’ve seen in the past.
