Summary0000692: Install custom systemd cups.service unit
Descriptioncupsd is the scheduler for CUPS. When it's run from systemd some systems pass the -l parameter so cupsd is run on demand by socket and path activation. The advantage of this setup is that CUPS is activated when needed, saving precious boot time and resources, and deactivated again after being idle for a while. This lazy activation scenario is efficient for desktop systems that print occasionally and for which printing is not time critical. However, dedicated print systems like SavaPage, that intensively use IPP to communicate with CUPS, need CUPS to be full-time activated.

Therefore we install a custom systemd cups.service unit in /etc/systemd/system/ to override the default shipped with the CUPS package. This custom unit starts cupsd with the -f parameter so it runs steadily in the foreground (without dependencies for cups.socket and cups.path).
