Samba Printer - Windows Print Queue

Hello All,

I have a FC9 box sharing a network printer to multiple Windows PCs. The last item that I can't seem to clear up is the Windows print queue. Whenever I open the print queue on a Windows box (XP/Vista) it shows previous jobs that have already completed.

I found one solution on the net that suggested adding "done_jobs=0" to /etc /lpd.conf but that file doesn't exist on my system.

How in the world do you prevent these old items from hanging in the queue?

OS: Fedora Core 9
Samba: 3.2.0-17

Thanks in advance!


cups, printer, samba
