Printing spool...


Say I printed something but the printer is not responding, is there a way to check what has been sent to the printer? Is it something related to spool?

If you printed with lpr, then you can check the print queue using lpq, and remove jobs using lprm

man lpq for details

I hope this helps

I printed with the GUI. Not from command lines.

You should still be able to check the print queue using lpq. I think there is also a function in Konqueror that allows you to check the print queue.
