    Default How do I cancel cups print jobs?

    Restarting cups doesn't get rid of all the queued kobs, and the cups web interface tells me that there are no jobs in the queue!

    I'm sick of having to press the cancel button on the printer (thank god it has one!!), there's about 38 jobs to cancel, each taking <> 30 seconds each.

    Talk about bloody annoying

    PS I tried to get help from the cupsd and cupsctl --help, but couldn't find anything useful

    openSUSE 10.3 and KDE 3.5 here (you do not reveal much about what you have).

    On my desktop there is an icon "Printer". Clicking on it opens a window with the print queue(s). I can remove from there. But removing via the Cups web-page does work here also, thus this Print window may not work for you either.

    The Printer object allows job cancellation and works pretty well. One
    issue: if the job has started spooling to the printer, you still have to
    cancel at the printer. I've seen 2-3 jobs spooled while the printer was
    out of paper. Fill the paper tray and there it goes...

    Thanks lads, all fixed now .

    That should have been "jobs" and not "kobs" naturally! I tend to hit many keys at once, my fingers seem to do whatever they want sometimes .

    I need a "Homer Simpson" size keyboard, not these kiddy ones .
