[Solved] Printer keeps printing while queue is empty

Postby jr121705 on Sun Sep 22, 2013 5:43 pm

I am running LMDE Cinnamon and I with a HP Photosmart C4180. I have been able to print just fine before, but now I am stuck. The printer queue is empty, but the printer keeps printing pages from this forum. They seem to be from one of my recent posts, but I don't remember ever trying to print them. Not only can't I figure out how to stop the printer from printing these pages, but when I try to open my printer it says "Option 'printer-reolution' has value '(unknown IPP tag)' and cannot be edited". I saw this post (viewtopic.php?f=195&t=100885), but I don't know how to apply this to my situation.

Try updating the HPLIP driver first. The driver can be downloaded from here.
