Printer Failure

Sunday, February 10, 2013 3:25 PM

Problem(s) Encountered:

Printer not working- virtual memory full? but we can''t see jobs to



I cleared the queue, here''s how

  1) login to mdm as root

  2) type "lpstat -t" to see if there are stuck jobs in the print

queue (there were)

  3) type "cancel -a" which clears the queue(s)

and then power cycle the printer, as the queue is likely stuck because

the printer is confused.

Someone tossed a 41.5Mb print job at the printer, that''s why it was unhappy.
