printer occupied

Postby tbrownarcher2 on Wed Nov 28, 2012 4:59 pm

My printer an HP Officejet 8600 pro, is not accepting jobs ... I think because it's occupied with several ofher jobs.


this is in linux mint13 cinnamon on a lenovo pc.

I'm not sure what jobs it's waiting to print nor do i care other than to end those jobs and get the new one started. Does anyone know how to get this done including the canceling of the older jobs?

Thanks,
Nate

in windows there is a printer control window i can't remember what it's called but there is an option to kill all waiting jobs.

I can find nothing like that in the linux system. Does anyone know of a way to find out what jobs there are waiting and to accept them or kill them.

And also how do I find out why they are not already printed ?

thanks,
Nate
