cups not cancelling jobs

Post by primer » Sun Jan 07, 2007 11:29 am

since several programs like mousepad and gimp can lock up a TP driven printer by sending incorrect data it essential to have a means to kill these broken jobs that just keep spewing inappropriate data at the driver.

I find the CUPS web admin makes a fairly bad job of this. It claims to have cancelled all jobs but then they reappear.

the cups console command cancel seems more effective here.

Code: Select all

cancel -a
