Printer has stopped working


I have Suse 9.1 and I used to be able to print from it but now I can not although I can using windows.
If I do lpq I just get :-




linux:~ # lpq
epson_stylusc66 is not ready
Rank Owner Job File(s) Total Size
1st david 43 (stdin) 234496 bytes
2nd david 45 (stdin) 453632 bytes
linux:~ #



I can not use enable printer because I get :-





enable espon_stylusc66
-bash: enable: espon_stylusc66: not a shell builtin
linux:~ #

It looks like you've lost the ghostscript driver for your printer (or it's been moved or renamed).

The easiest way out of this is to delete the printer through YaST, and recreate it.

Note that this will probably delete the pending jobs; you can rescue the .ps files from /var/spool/lp/ (or wherever your printer spool directory is) and then print them again with lpr after reinstalling the printer.

It also looks like the enable command isn't working like you think it is; try specifying the full path to the enable program, eg.
Code:
/usr/bin/enable epson_stylusc66
