Hi,

I found that there were lot of pending jobs in queue of printer and hence users are unable to print the jobs

i know cancel <jobid> will cancel a particular job for the printer

Is there any command available at linux to cancel all the printer jobs for a specific selected printer


tHERE were more than 1000 jobs for the printer and hene theb printer for stuck

now i need to cancel all the pending jobs for the printer

cancel jobid --- cannot use for all 1000 jobs

So please help me n this.


thanks

    Use cancel <queuename> or lprm command (lprm -a all) – Google the commands for more details.

    Thanks,
