Please help delete printer job

Rodolfo Medina
Hi...

by mistake I told my Samsung ML-1925 to print a large document and don't manage
to cancel that...  I tried with the `cancel' command, also lprm, and also from
within web browser print management...  but nothing, it goes on wanting to
print it still.  Before it uses all the available ink and more, please anyone
tell me how to stop it.

Thanks for any help,

Rodolfo

Turn off the printer. Go, do that now.

Now you have time to figure out how to stop the job from being
resubmitted.

Thanks.  Solved.  I deleted the printer from Cups managing section and then
added it again.  It still printed another few pages and then stopped.  But next
time...?

There should be a way to view the queue from the Cups web interface  
(which I assume you used to delete the printer), but I don't know the  
exact path.

 From the command-line lpq to view the queue, lprm to remove jobs.  
They might be in another package (perhaps lpd compatibility).

But often the job does not appear anymore in the queue anymore because  
the computer has finished sending it to the printer. In this case you  
have to cancel in the printer, if it provides an option for that.

When I have that problem (I've cancelled a print job at my computer, but the
printer is either continuing to print or resumes printing when I press
resume), I depower the printer and let it sit for a minute or so to clear the
printer's buffer.

Really, my first step is to turn the printer off or press pause (if there is a
pause button).  If I had pressed pause, I then turn the printer off to let the
buffer clear.

Thanks to all for help.  My case was, I think, the one described: even canceled
the jobs from PC, the printer was continuing printing and only turning it off
could stop it...  After turning it on again, it started printing again but only
a few more pages, then stopped definitely.  Before turning it off, I had also
deleted the printer from CUPS managing centre, but this was maybe not
important.
