    thanks macom for the golden tip. I've got it working now. I added '--device /dev/dbus --/dev/usb' to the docker line and it works now.

    1. docker stop cupsd

    2. docker rm cupsd

    3. sudo docker run -d -p 631:631 -v /var/run/dbus:/var/run/dbus --device /dev/bus --device /dev/usb --name cupsd olbat/cupsd

    4. go to the browser

    5 in URL type http://your_ip:631, 'et voila'

    I've got a Konica-Minolta connected to a USB port on my OMV5 NAS. I'm new to OMV, so I've got work my way around it. I installed the CUPS container and it's working. I was able to configure my network printer (Brother), but CUPS fails to recognize my local (USB connected) printer.
    I entered the container to see if i could see some logging, but no success.

    I am not familiar with Docker and containers. Maybe the usb port is not recognized by the container? Or The guest is not allowed to see the hosts hardware?
    How can I connect a local printer to my NAS and make it available in CUPS? Am I missing steps?

    At least the kernel finds it:

    chipmunk03@omv-nas:~$ lsusb |grep -i minol

    Bus 007 Device 002: ID 0686:300c Minolta Co., Ltd PagePro 1300W

    Has anybody a useful tip or a helpful explanation how to configure CUPS with a local printer?
