I've inherited a mess of an infrastructure in my new job, there hasn't been a sys admin in post for about a year, so things are falling apart. The first thing to break after I started was the printer server. I have it working again, and people can print, however it's very slow, slower... (0 Replies)

Hi, i'm running Openserver 5.0.7 as a CUPS client for a Linux server. The root user can issue a "lpstat -t" to see the printers and can submit jobs without issues.
The problem presents when I try to work as a regular user. If I issue an "lpstat -t" all I get after a few seconds is "lpstat:... (1 Reply)

cupsenable(8) Apple Inc. cupsenable(8)
cupsdisable, cupsenable - stop/start printers and classes
cupsdisable [ -E ] [-U username ] [ -c ] [ -h server[:port] ] [ -r reason ] [ --hold ] destination(s)
cupsenable [ -E ] [-U username ] [ -c ] [ -h server[:port] ] [ --release ] destination(s)
cupsenable starts the named printers or classes.
cupsdisable stops the named printers or classes. The following options may be used:
Forces encryption of the connection to the server.
Uses the specified username when connecting to the server.
Cancels all jobs on the named destination.
Uses the specified server and port.
Holds remaining jobs on the named printer. Useful for allowing the current job to complete before performing maintenance.
Sets the message associated with the stopped state. If no reason is specified then the message is set to "Reason Unknown".
Releases pending jobs for printing. Use after running cupsdisable with the --hold option to resume printing.
Unlike the System V printing system, CUPS allows printer names to contain any printable character except SPACE, TAB, "/", or "#". Also,
printer and class names are not case-sensitive.
The System V versions of these commands are disable and enable. They have been renamed to avoid conflicts with the bash(1) build-in com-
mands of the same name.
The CUPS versions of disable and enable may ask the user for an access password depending on the printing system configuration. This dif-
fers from the System V versions which require the root user to execute these commands.
