View Full Version : [ubuntu] Massive printer buffer: how do I delete the file?

August 24th, 2010, 03:03 AM
I have a small hard drive and I tried to print a large 50 page document from the internet. During the process I ran out of harddrive space. Where is this file? This caused me to have to use CTRL+ALT+F1 to use the terminal and delete some files so I could log-in (for some reason it wouldn't log in with sda1 at 100%...lol who knows why...) But I still cant find the file that the printer program made.

See if it is in /tmp. If not, search for it using:

locate nameoffile
(if you know the name)
