Re: [K12OSN] Printertrouble on K12LTSP4.2

For me this was happening to a printer attached to a local thin client...
when a student would lockup or reboot the client...the printer would cease to function....
in my case I use the 'http://ltspmachine:631/' and stop then start the printer again...and everything starts working again.

I have gotten into some printertrouble in K12LTSP4.2. I believe this
must be an FC3 thing, since it didn't happen in K12LTSP4.0.

What happens is that my printers go into a "not ready" state after some
time. "Some time" can be an hour or three days, it doesn't really seem
to be an exact answer.

1) have you checked /var/log/cups/error_log ?

2) printing from Windows sometimes causes me problems if I don't
   enable raw printing. Try editing /etc/cups/mime.convs and
   /etc/cups/mime.types and uncomment the lines that enable the
   Raw filter.

3) I have heard reports that if a printer runs out of paper, after some
   period of time CUPS will disable that printer.
