administering canon printers
 
Hi,
I have an ubuntu workstation 8.10 and wanted to know if I could monitor Canon printer queues , ( see jobs, start/stop queues) etc. etc. similar to what my xp workstation does with the canon fiery sw.

is there anything out there?

thx

You'd know, because you're the one who set up the print queue

The port # that the service is listening on.

But, it would help if you said what kind of Canon print queue. If you're talking about a little, consumer-grade printer, a CUPS monitoring solution that the one you were recommended, is the best bet. If you're talking about a big ImageRunner device, you can load the software from Codehost, which gives you a good look into the queue, and all the features.

Typo! That should be: http://localhost:631/jobs or just http://localhost:631/ for CUPS management, in general.
