While cups printing had worked fine for a long time, recently it has begun to quit working correctly and I can't figure out why. I can get it restarted, but then it will just quit working again and I have to go through the exact same steps to get it restarted.
In the PCLinux Control Center >> System >> Manage system services by enabling etc.
it shows cups running and
- On boot is checked, but I have to click on [Start] and [OK]
again to get it to work.
Then I go to Hardware > Configure printing and scanning > Set up printers, etc.
Sometimes it shows the printer has vanished and I have to reset it again, other
times it is there.
I do 'lpstat' and it shows a document waiting to be printed, but it does not print.
How can I get this reset so it will not continually quit printing and have to get restarted again?
If 'lpstat' shows a document waiting to be printed and it shows the printer to be enabled, but "idle" ... what command could I issue to get the printer to restart? I tried 'lpstat restart' but that doesn't work. The only thing I've been able to do is to cancel the waiting document and resend the same document to print again after having gone through the printer configuration again.
