Network Print Queue

Postby Xinerama » Thu Jun 26, 2014 6:47 am

Is there a way to visualize the percentage/time completed/remaining of a document currently printing?

The issue is that I sent a 35 page, double sided, document to a networked printer. I need 30 copies of said document. I don't know how long it was going to take nor how much time is left since it started printing.

Hi Xinerama,

You can either look in the print queue (not sure if it tells time remaining but it does give a status). Open Menu -> Administration -> Printers, then select the printer you want info on. Right click and choose View Print Queue (Ctrl+F keyboard shortcut).


Open the CUPS web interface page and look at the job list (http://localhost:631/jobs/) .
