Printer Queue

I was trying to print a web page in galeon (in slackware), and i tried entering my printer's location (/dev/lp0) i now see that it was wrong to do this, but now it is printing all this crap that i don't want - over 5 pages of it, and it is not in the CUPS print queue for Print Manager. How can i delete this file from the queue?

Have you checked the queue sheet for LPR? When you open up the Print Manager you should be able to select either CUPS or LPR as a print server. It could be that whatever is being printed is being done by that instead of CUPS.
