Memel,

The command you want is: lprm

Here are some examples:

    $ lprm # This kills the current jobs on the default printer
    $ lprm -P <printer> # This kills the current jobs on the named printer

For more information, please see the manpage. If lprm says "lprm: No active jobs on the <printer>", then the job has been completely sent to the printer, in which case cancelling the job at the printer should kill it.

Please report back here and let me know if this Solves your question.

Thanks,

Harvey

Memel,

One last suggestion. You can also open firefox, and enter the following in the address bar:

   http://localhost:631

This will bring up the cups web interface. You can go to the Jobs tab, search for all jobs, and cancel those you want. The username and password to use, is your login username and password. If it tells you the job is already completed, then cancelling the job at the printer, or turning it off will work.

Please report back here and let me know if this Solves your question.

Thanks,

Harvey
