After seeing "unable to open listen socket for address ::1:631 -

Suggestion: amend your /etc/hosts file and comment out the line that
has '::1' listed for localhost.

When I saw that ::1:631 error I stripped all IPV6 lines from /etc/hosts. Didn't help.

I've been trying off& on in 11.4& 12.1 since last winter to make my
IP printer work, but it refuses to print except for the YaST2 test
page, or PDFs from Okular.

I guess you're not printing direct but via cups?

I configure printers using YaST2, and let apps figure out on their own where the printer is, what it's called and how to use it. It always worked that way before.
