Angry CUPS Quota Limit Reached ERROR

Hi guys, now i'm having troubles with my EPSON LX-300+, i've already installed my printer with its driver --> Epson Dot Matrix Foomatic/eps9high (Epson-Dot_Matrix-eps9high.ppd)i have allowed all my users to access de CUPS and the printer, but every time i try to print from console or the trial print from the cups:

lpr file

i always get this message:

lpr: Quota Limit Reached

and i've tried all, re-installing my printer and the cups but everything stays the same, that damn error keeps showing and showing, so if anyone knows how to fix it i would be very pleased, or anyone could tell me if i'm picking the wrong ppd?

thanks in advance, Frame360

Try using the CUPS administrative web interface. Point your web browswer to localhost:631. You will see a web page with a bunch of options. Check your printer settings using this interface. I don't know what you would be looking for but it may become apparent when you are poking around.

You might have to set a password first. Use
lppasswd –g sys –a root
to do so (at least 6 characters, one of them numeric). Tell us the results, please.

I am also having this problem, slackware 11, CUPS 1.3svn with ghostscript. What did you do to solve the problem?

Uuups. I think I remember CUPS and lp are incompatible (at least at my SuSE box). Maybe that is the reason the lpr command doesn't work. Try a different command (e.g. Kprinter) or look what lpr points at...
