is my i250 printer going crazy ?


I installed Mandriva Linux 2005 on my computer, and I got my modem detected without a flaw (Sagem Fast 800) (else I wouldn't be able to send this post), and my printer (Canon i250) thanks to some drivers found on the official site in New Zealand, and a little help because of dependancies error related to during the installation. So, I am a happy camper - at the moment.

I tried to print under Opera web browser : no problem, except the fact that I had never been prompted for cancelling printing while the printer had no more paper, and that's probably the reason why I have problems now.

Indeed, now I cannot print, and sometimes, I get random and numerous printings started while restarting my system or turning my printer on.

The printings which are launched are exactly the ones I didn't get before...

Is there a way to cancel all of these expected printings, so that I can use my printer again ?

And last, what can I do when I don't need to print further and as my printer is temporarily running out of paper ?

Thanks for your help

Best regards

(if this is not so good explained, ask me, and I will rewrite it in another way)

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

In this case I've closed the original because a) the dupe was in
the more suitable forum and b) had answers.
