openSUSE CUPS Container Image


This container image contains the latest cups server from openSUSE Tumbleweed.


  • registry.opensuse.org/opensuse/cups

Start the container

 # podman run -d --rm -p 631:631 --name cups registry.opensuse.org/opensuse/cups:latest


This CUPS container comes with a default cups configuration which allows remote access for adminitration. An own configuration can be provided as volume: -v /srv/cups:/etc/cups, where the example assumes you have your cups configuration stored in /srv/cups.

For further configuration, login to the CUPS web interface on port 631 (e.g. https://localhost:631) and configure CUPS to your need. IMPORTANT: you need to use https://, else cups will do a wrong redirect!

The default administration account is: admin

For security reasons there is no default password, it has to be set with the environment variable ADMIN_PASSWORD.

 # podman run -d --rm -p 631:631 -v /srv/cups:/etc/cups -e ADMIN_PASSWORD=mySecretPassword --name cups registry.opensuse.org/opensuse/cups:latest

Systemd support

The package containers-systemd contains a service file and sysconfig file to configure and automatically start the cups container with systemd.

 # systemctl start container-cups
