Well, I just got a new printer, an HP OfficeJet J5780 All-in-one. Its nice, CUPS actually sees this printer, and I was able to set it up relatively easily, and test printed a page. I then went back and changed a few settings for the DPI output, and decided to try another test print, and was met with a quota error page...
Quota limit reached.
However I don't have any other jobs pending. I guess I missed something, but can't quite figure out what. How do I change the quota limit?
Sorry, I failed to specify my version. I am running Slackware 12, and I made sure to enable hplip, since hplip was available in this version. I have looked at the hplip site at sourceforge, and it seems that hplip is the recommended default for deskjet, not hpjis. It seems that hpjis has been superseded by hplip. Anyways, this is the error log.

I don't see a problem there, I think the 'guest' account is for samba.
I'm running out of ideas.
I read in the hplip site (Technical Documentation > Man Pages) that there are a number of command-line tools, eg
hp-setup, hp-toolbox, hp-check, hp-info etc (I think you will find them in /usr/share/hplip)
Documentation for their use is on the site.
I would be tempted to remove the printer and start again (probably removing the files in /var/spool/cups at the same time). These tools may help you get the correct set-up.
I had the same problem with my HP 1018 printer with a CUPS warning of out of quota.
I unplugged it from you linux box and plugged the printer into my Wintindo laptop.
Did a print test and of course it worked, but then I plugged it back into the linux
box and it started printing again. I think the issues is with the flame ram in the
printer and not the linux box. There must be a file that get dump in windows.
Just thought I would pass it along. Hope it helps someone.
It might be some option under the printer itself then. Anyways, I just got another computer, and I moved the printer to that computer. It acts like a printer server, and after I set it up, I still get a quota limit error, see this link: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=576387. Hrmm..
Well I'm still at a loss here. I tried unplugging the printer completely just to clear it's memory, and still nothing. Plugged it in my XP notebook, seems to have worked temporarily. I don't want to have to plug it into my xp notebook every few times just to get it to work again. There has to be a better solution.
I already did that. Also, this is not on my local host, but on another computer I specifically setup as a print server. I made sure to add my user name. Nothing. I'm rather disappointed in the CUPS docs. No real help there, plus no real way of configuring it through the cups web interface.
Its been a while, and I wish to get back to this issue again. I have been scouring google and still no answer to this issue. Adding and removing doesn't change the quota status, so there is clearly a CUPS issue, but I tried all I can think of but still nothing. Anybody got any other suggestions?
I rember that this problem have
turned on when I have added a new user to printers privilege. So I have added this line " AllowUser myusername" in printers.conf and when I reboot (leaving the printer turned on) the problem was fixed
