    how do I clear the printer cache.

    Mandrake 8.2, How do I clear or delete a document from the printer cache. Please be specific as I am a newbie. Thanks.

    The printer is a Lexmark Z32.

    Normally, lpstat -t will list all the printers available to a system and then list all print jobs in a particular printers queue. A print job looks similar to printer_name-1234. To kill that particular print job type:

    cancel printer-name-1234

    -mk
    If it ain't broke,
    Fix it till it is.

    Thanks Mike. My question now is: I've been able to delete two print jobs from the query but the last print job is under root. How do I login to a terminal as root to delete the last print job? Thanks again.

    Update: Done some reading on the Mandrake site, figured it out. I think my printer problem is solved. Thanks again. Update:
