looking for print job

Hi I am looking for my print que in Ubuntu 12.04. With windows it was a icon in the taskbar. I have now idea where to find a print que so that it can be cancled.
Thank you

If you're using CUPS you should be able to point your browser to the hostname and port 631. e.g. browser on the server itself go put localhost:631. In there you can look at Jobs (which is queues).

From command line you might see what you're interested in with lp commands. (e.g. lpstat). Type "man lpstat" for more details. The command line to cancel a job is "cancel" with the job specified. Type "man cancel" for more details.
