I am also trying to install CUPS on my Pi3. I have a Brother MFC-J4420DW and the company said the driver is not supported on ARMv7 hardware. This was the primary reason I purshased exagear.

From reading thru the exagear doc it says cannot have a service conflict between host and guest so removed CUPS from host and installed on guest (not sure if it is strictly a service or not but thought it would be safer to remove). The CUPS web interface at localhost:631 comes up empty... not sure how a web based admin service like this would work in exagear. I'm assuming there is a subset of an x386 linux system in your "guest space" (/opt/exagear/images/debian-8/)... would it include printing support beyond just CUPS (lpr and some other print support does not appear to exist in guest)?

Does exagear support a separate web server capability (which would suggest another potential "service" conflict http)? Or could guest CUPS use the host web service to administer the guest CUPS setup?

Trying to get my head around interplay between host and guest and what is already installed in guest.

Thanks... think exagear can help me solve my printer problem hopefully just need some guidance.

An update to my prvious post...

I found the driver package and a related uninstall.... ran uninstall in host
and then
sudo dpkg -i --force-all xxxx.i386.deb in guest
/etc/init.d/lpd restart

checked lpstat -p -d and see old printers from host but disabled and "backends" do not exist.
Started to dig into lpadmin since CUPS web interface not working against guest... Would be great if could point CUPS to guest.
