Did you print the 4-5 pages as root? and did you try printing afterwards as a normal user? if so, this can be a problem with the permissions.
Seems you're using cups, the cups web-interface can be opened in a browser, go to the adress
it's self explaining and provides much information. If you can't open the webinterface, most likely cups isn't running.
Hi markus i have restarted cups and i am printing through root user in localhost.I have printed 4-5 pages but after that it seems print que problem but using lpq commnad it says printer is ready no entries.So i think its not a problem with que.I am fully unaware of whats happening..
in the webinterface you can set the permissions. Look at "Administration". You can configure a list of users who are permitted to print and (be careful here) as well a list of users who are not permitted to print.
